Programs by Campus


Human-Computer Interaction


The range of courses offered is designed to enable students to construct a program for the Ph.D. Minor in HCI that is relevant to their primary research interests. Students taking topics classes must establish, to the satisfaction of the Steering Committee, the relevance of the subject matter to HCI when proposing the inclusion of such courses. Further courses will be added to or removed from the list on an ongoing basis at the discretion of the Steering Committee.
