Pratt School of Information students at work in the classroom

The Master of Science in Information Experience Design (IXD) program is an innovative blend of the Information Science (IS), Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), and User Experience (UX) disciplines. The IXD program educates students with academic or professional backgrounds in the liberal arts, humanities, and social/behavioral sciences and prepares them for careers in the rapidly growing UX profession, which includes UX Designers, Information Architects, Interaction Designers, UX Researchers, Usability Analysts, and Content Strategists.

With its empathetic, research-based, and human-centered approach to technology design, the IXD program teaches students to be well-rounded UX professionals who are not just strong designers but also skilled researchers, communicators, and strategists.
