The Human Factors and Interface Design concentration allows students to gain a deeper understanding of user needs and preferences in order to develop learning applications that are accessible and easy for the learner to use. Students will learn the various methods available for evaluating, measuring, and improving the way humans and computers interact. They will also be able to apply their knowledge of e-learning systems to real-world challenges.
Note:A minimum of 55 quarter credits must be completed at the 3000 or 4000 level in order to meet program requirements. In some cases, this means that students will need to select 3000 or 4000 level courses as either general education or elective options. Students should consult their academic advisor if they have questions about individual program requirements.
Choose nine courses from general education, B.S. in Instructional Design and Technology, or other Walden bachelor’s degree programs. At least 55 credits must be at the 3000–4000 level. Elective credits should total 20 to meet the program requirements. Students may also be eligible to transfer previous credit to meet the elective requirements. Note on Minors: Electives can also be used to complete a six-course minor.
