Great technology doesn't just solve problems—it puts real people at the center of the user experience.
LVC’s Interaction Design (IXD) major shows you how to blend science, tech, creativity, and design while you develop applications, products, and experiences that deliver exactly what they promise.
Learn More About the Program
When IXD majors go to work, they merge design and technology to improve the human experience. That means becoming an expert in topics including design, communications, electronics, data, programming, research and development, and project management. At LVC, you’ll gain skills in each of those in-demand fields. Double-major in the Digital Communications program and develop an even wider range of skills.
Imagine It. Then Make It.
Brainstorm projects in the Studio Lounge, an exclusive space for Design, Media, & Technology students. Test your ideas in the AT&T-funded Usability Lab. Then bring your visions to life using the 3D printers, scanners, and sensors in the LVC Maker Space.
Interaction design is a collaborative field. You’ll learn that lesson first at LVC, where you’ll work with others to build better experiences. That may mean partnering with digital communications majors to design cutting-edge apps or working with our student-run VALE Music Group to stage concerts and events.
Employers are eager to hire IXD pros. You can put your skills to work at companies before you even graduate. You’ll have a chance to work on class projects for clients such as The Hershey Company or Armstrong World Industries and complete internships for organizations such as marketing agencies, healthcare organizations, educational institutions, and more.
