The Media and Graphics Interdisciplinary Centre (MAGIC) coordinates the MAS and MLIS Sub-Specialization in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Human-Computer Interaction is an interdisciplinary field of study that explores human behaviour in technology-rich environments with the goal of informing the design and testing of new technologies. MAGIC does not grant degrees; however, students earning degrees in participating departments can also earn a Specialization in Human-Computer Interaction by successfully completing the Specialization requirements listed below in addition to those necessary for their Master’s degree.
Application to the The HCI Subspecialization is open to qualified students in the stand-alone MAS and MLIS degrees [students in the Dual MAS/MLIS are not eligible].
For more information please visit the HCI Sub-Specialization website.
If you are interested in applying for the sub-specialization in HCI please make an appointment to discuss this with the iSchool Graduate Adviser, Dr. Rick Kopak.
