Can anyone pls tell me which of the university is the best for HCI, based on the course content for a Masters degree in UK?
University of Sussex - http://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/pg/2012/taught/1572/25203#tabs-2
Birmingham - http://www.cs.bham.ac.uk/admissions/postgraduate-taught/degree_info/msc-hci/
University of York - http://www.cs.york.ac.uk/postgraduate/taught-courses/msc-hcit/
City University of London - http://www.city.ac.uk/courses/postgraduate/human-centred-systems
University of Bath - http://www.bath.ac.uk/study/pg/programmes/msc-huma-comp-inte
Thanks in advance!! :)
You seemed to have missed one of the most populair courses in the UK, the HCI MA at UCL: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/uclic/taught_courses/masters_of_science
It's actually an MSc, and not an MA.
I graduated from the programme, and agree it's very good. It does lean heavily towards psychology and ergonomics, less on design.
The usual answer to "the best" is always - it depends. ;)
UCL - Human Computer Interaction with Ergonomics
I've just moved into London from SF, and I'm actually looking for a course that leans more toward design, but has the traditional HCI elements mixed in - Any recommendations from the London crowd?
Does anyone have feedback/experience with the program offered by City University London?
Also does anyone have information on accreditation for this program and/or the UCL program?
I am actually more interested in User Experience (UX) and Interaction Design (IxD) fields, so it seems that the degree in RCA would be the one for me. I don't really like the idea of spending 2 years on it, though.
I would suggest you to have a look at this document, as there are some reviews in the Master's degrees you are interested in: http://www.scribd.com/doc/45763160/Worldwide-Masters-Programs-in-HCI-IxD (thanks Hezi Taniani! ).
Hope you find it useful!
