UX Academy is a year-long training program for college students and recent graduates. We designed this program to help you build a strong foundation in user experience.
Our program will supplement your college degree and fill in some of the gaps that are missing from many traditional design, communications, or software development programs.
We’ve found that the best way to learn something is to do it. We’ll teach you about UX, but we’ll also give you a chance to put that knowledge into practice. Under our guidance, you will work on an end-to-end UX project. At the end of the program you will leave with a comprehensive portfolio piece that you can use to demonstrate your skills to a prospective employer.
