Top MS in HCI (Human Computer Interaction / Design)- in USA

HCI is now a very popular Human-Computer among students looking to pursue a Masters Degree, even though the stream is relatively new the number of students applying to this course is rising year on year. HCI is a study of how people interact with computers and places a high amount of importance to “user experience”, “design” & interface.


There has been an increase in the number of options to specialize and more and more universities are now offering the course, do note some of these programs are termed directly, some are interdisciplinary courses & some are offered as a track/specialization and some even more specific.
