Master of Science in Human-Computer Interaction

Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is the study of how people use computers throughout their lives. The research done in Georgia Tech's Master of Science in HCI seeks to develop user interfaces that are useful, usable, and enjoyable. It focuses on activities ranging from design to development to evaluation of computer systems, with a goal of understanding how computers and technology affect people and society.

The MS in HCI is an interdisciplinary program offered collaboratively by four schools:

  1. Industrial Design
  2. Interactive Computing
  3. Literature, Media, and Communication (LMC)
  4. Psychology

Students enter the MS-HCI program through any of the four participating units, the choice of which usually reflects that student's intended area of specialization and general background. Students with diverse and eclectic backgrounds are encouraged to apply, including those with previous work experience.

The program provides the practical skills and theoretical understandings needed to become leaders in the design, implementation and evaluation of the next generation of human-computer interfaces. Alumni work around the globe for national and international companies.
