I've been doing UX design for almost a year now and I am considering taking up a graduate program in HCI at Depaul. For those who have been in the industry or those that hire UX designers:
Is it beneficial at all for me to have this degree? Will it provide me more opportunities? Will I have better leverage for salary negotiation?
I am just wondering if the benefits will out weigh the costs of the program and see if this is something that will accelerate my career and give me more experience while I work full-time as a jr. ux designer.
