Which are the best American colleges for user experience (UX) design?

Hi! I'm 27 years old and decide to invest 2 years in my life to join a graduate program. When I graduate again, I will be 29. It's not a very young age, so I'm careful in choosing which college to spend this 2 year with.

My future career plan is to be a UX designer, with focus on the intersection of data science and user experience design. If there is a chance to work with search experience, I will definitely go for it.

Which American universities are the best choices in UX design education? How will the recruiters see the universities? Thanks.

Hi Kathryn! First off, congrats on making the decision to go back to school for your graduate degree. In terms of best US schools to go to for UX Design, here's a good site for you to reference: https://uxplanet.org/how-to-get-into-user-experience-ux-masters-degree-programs-in-the-u-s-19ec1701cee Top 3 based on this site are Carnegie Mellon, Georgia Institute of Tech, & University of Washington. I would say as a word of advice, the caliber of the program you enter is important, but also don't be afraid to consider the school's culture or even the city you'll be moving to. Best of luck!

Bentley College has a great and distinguished HMI program that encompasses UI/UX Design. You can also get to the same place through local certificate programs at the StartUp Institute and General Assembly.
