Canada: HalifaxDalhousie UniversityMaster of Information Management@dalsimnews485 Experience:
Understanding theories and practices of human-computer interaction is critical to organizational success. This class explores how technology affects human use and examines the process (from conception of an idea to design and evaluation) – with a particular emphasis on web-based activities. The class discusses individual and group information-seeking behaviours in public and private contexts – along with the theories and models of information-seeking behaviour that contribute to a nuanced understanding of the user experience.

Information Systems and Technologies:
This class makes clear the relationship between IT and information management, often misconstrued in organizations. The class includes theories of databases and integrated systems design, allied with practical applications of a wide range of information technologies to support organizational goals. These include traditional intranet and extranet applications, along with emerging web 2.0 technologies. Concepts of information architecture (IA) relating to the design of shared and often web-based information environments (including intranets, databases and online communities) are introduced. The practices of IA are examined through analyses of real organizations and how the information environment can best serve their missions, goals, processes and their clients, suppliers and other stakeholders.

USA: IndianaIndiana University, School of Informatics, Bloomington, INMaster of Science in HCI@iusoic2,700 interaction (HCI) has traditionally been the domain of engineering and psychology. Here, we approach it from the perspective of design. Our focus goes beyond simply using technology to solve a problem. It is about creating a technology experience that will be functional, intuitive, and even delightful for the people who use it.

The goal of the human-computer interaction design (HCI/d) program is to teach you to think like a designer. Our approach is research-based, but never rigid. Though students follow a highly structured curriculum that prepares them for a professional career, there is plenty of room to pursue individual interests.

During your time here, you will refine your personal design philosophy through course work that:

Teaches you the key history, literature, and research of HCI design (HCI/d)
Introduces you to multiple frameworks, research techniques, and creative exercises
Helps you learn the skills necessary to use and design current and emerging applications
Explores the socioeconomic consequences of implementing technologies in different cultures

USA: IowaIowa State UniversityGraduate HCI program (Certificate and Masters programs)@isuhci251 HCI graduate major reflects a broad recognition in academia and industry of the need to train researchers to meet the challenges faced by this rapidly evolving area of technological progress. Quote from a Student:

HCI program @ ISU:
1) Pursue a certificate AND a masters degree simultaneously - It is possible to have a member of the faculty 'sponsor' a student's admission into the masters program while completing the certificate program.
2) "In State tuition" for out of state students. This is offset by a 'delivery fee' for online classes, which is about $150 per credit hour....
3) No official meeting times - The assignment due dates are set and you may need to meet up with team members.
4) Flexible payments - Iowa State University will allow students to pay their tuition in monthly increments throughout the semester. They charge anywhere from $20-$100 for this, but I think its worth it if your current employer won't provide tuition assistance for a non-degree program, which goes right back to #1. Find a faculty member and apply for degree admission, and next thing you know, your company is paying for both programs!

USA: MichiganWayne State University, Detroit, MIMaster of Library and Information Science@waynestate28,700 offers the Master of Library and Information Science graduate degree and certificate programs. Course in Information architecture (IA) involves the dissemination of information in a manner that takes into effect context, content, and user. While typically associated with website development, information architecture is also key in technical writing, presentation preparation and report generation. Librarians have been pioneering the practices and developing the core tools of information architecture (IA) for hundreds of years. While it’s true that there is no one official certification process or academic programs for information architects, an ALA-accredited MLIS degree continues to be one of the key credentials for IA practitioners. The purpose of this course is to acquaint students with the history and practice of information architecture for the World Wide Web, and to help students to leverage their skills and knowledge in the field of librarianship within the broad context and practice of information architecture.
Competencies Expected: By the end of the course students will be able to:
Understand the basics of optimizing websites for search engine fundability
1. History of Information Architecture
2. Influence of traditional librarianship on the modern practice of information architecture,
3. Roles for IAs in web design / redesign teams,
4. Basics of IA practice
5. Understanding content, context, and users
6. Heuristic evaluation
7. Organization structure, labeling and taxonomies
8. Optimizing search
9. Deliverables

USA: New JerseyRutgers UniversityMasters of Business in Sciencesame Experience Design concentration does not contain a specific course called Information Architecture, but the term Information Architecture is a major topic in the description of the concentration: The objective of the Master of Business and Science with a concentration in User Experience Design (UXD) is to train students in the essential skills of designing engaging, easily learned and usable computer-based interfaces whether they be web pages, mobile phones or lawnmowers. Students will learn the current methods and practices involved in gathering user information, creative designing, prototyping and testing a wide range of interface media. The program will also give students a basic understanding of human computer interaction (HCI) and the underlying psychology, communication and sociology theory that guides design plus training in visual design principles. Portfolio preparation is a key element of the program as are current interface design techniques such as building personas, using design patterns, content management, information architecture, card sorting, online usability testing, eyetracking and workflow analysis. A key difference between this program and most other UXD masters degrees that are offered is its second focus on the business side of design. Students will learn project management, accounting, marketing, business communication, creating a business plan and financial decision making. This will enable graduates to move into roles managing user experience design, establishing a consultancy that provides UXD support or launching a new enterprise in which the product is primarily UX design-based.Concentration Coordinators:
