First of all... You can do everything you want... So please do not doubt about you.. in fact, I suggest that choose the Career that you think is the most you like right now, but you have to make decisions based on a little research of the Market of Jobs and see ahead in future like 5 or 10 years watching you doing the same all days, because you love it...

Thank you comment icon Hello, i have chosen ui/ux because I have an interest in it and I do see my future with it too. i am following some youtube channels and researching in it too. thank you. aesha

Hi Aesha! You can do whatever you want! :)
I was a double major in college; Marketing and Graphic Design... and ended up going and getting my Masters in Design and Technology. I now work as a UI/UX Designer and love it. I think you should definitely look into UI/UX. It is an important need right now as more and more design needs are going digital. I think your experience as an interior designer would work well with UI/UX. Similar to how you might design the flow of how someone navigates through a physical space; UI/UX is about leading a user through the flow of a product with the least amount of friction to help them with their objective. You should definitely look into programs that encourage people from various career/education backgrounds. I went to Parsons and our Design & Tech program had students from so many different disciplines - even lawyers and art historians!
Thank you comment icon Hello, your story is inspiring and till now I knew that it was plus point for me that I have done my UG in design but your explanation made my point much stronger on how it will be useful to me. thank you, will definitely look into your recommendations. aesha

Definitely! In these days double majors or a Bachelors in a given discipline with Masters in another discipline or a minor + major is so common.

In fact when you would pursue a Masters in UI/UX design, you would definitely have a lot of transferable skills from undergrad. In essence, you are designing for a "user". After obtaining a Masters in UI/UX design, you would be a valuable asset for any product-focused industry. It can be hardware (wearables/phones) or software (applications). Also, you can pivot back to a career as an Interior Designer, and contribute towards designing "Smart Homes". The advantage of having education in cross-functional disciplines is the ability to communicate between different teams in an industry. As a UI/UX engineer, you would be routinely collaborating with functional engineers (ME/EE/CS), to bring a product to life. Hence, it is crucial!

Minji’s Answer

Yes, you can pursue a Master's degree in UI/UX design even if your undergraduate degree is in interior design. Many universities offer graduate programs in UI/UX design that are available to students from diverse backgrounds.

Since you have an interest in graphic design and have experience designing logos and business cards, this can be an advantage in pursuing a career in UI/UX design. These skills can be transferable to designing user interfaces and user experiences for digital products.

It's important to note that pursuing a Master's degree in UI/UX design will require some additional preparation and training. Depending on the program, you may need to have a foundational understanding of programming languages, web development, and user interface design principles. You may also want to consider learning relevant software tools such as Adobe XD, Sketch, or Figma.

Overall, if you have a passion for design and a desire to move into the field of UI/UX design, a Master's degree in this field can provide you with the education and training you need to pursue this career path.
