General Assembly’s User Experience Design Immersive is a transformative course designed for you to get the necessary skills for a UX Design role in three months.
The User Experience Design bootcamp is led by instructors who are expert practitioners in their field, supported by career coaches that work with you since day one and enhanced by a career services team that is constantly in talks with employers about their UX Design hiring needs.
What you'll accomplish
As a graduate, you’ll have a portfolio of projects that show your creative and technical ability to launch the next generation of successful apps, websites and digital experiences. Throughout this program, you will:
Identify and implement the most effective methods of user research to gain a deeper understanding of what users want and need.
Use interaction and visual design techniques to craft a dynamic digital product that brings delight and function to users.
Conduct usability testing to make product experiences more accessible for diverse user populations and environments.
Learn best practices for working within a product team, employing product management techniques and evaluating technical constraints to better collaborate with developers.
Produce polished design documentation, including wireframes and prototypes, to articulate design decisions to clients and stakeholders.
Prepare for the world of work, compiling a professional-grade portfolio of solo, group, and client projects.
This is a beginner-friendly program with no prerequisites, although many students are familiar with common tools for graphic and web designers and some may have had exposure to UX concepts in the past. The General Assembly curriculum helps you gain fluency in end-to-end UX processes, tools, and documentation and put them to work on the path to a new career as a User Experience Designer.
