Work is offered for the master of science and doctor of philosophy degrees with a major in Human Computer Interaction (HCI). The graduate program in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) welcomes applicants from a diverse collection of technical and creative fields whose unifying characteristic is the desire to develop new ways to bridge the gap between human and machine. The students must demonstrate skill in software development and proficiency in high-level, object-oriented programming. To accommodate students who lack exposure to programming, the HCI interdepartmental graduate major will offer an introductory course to provide a base of technical skills.
At the Masters level, entrance requirements will include an undergraduate degree and demonstrable software skills. The degree calls for 30 credit hours of course work including appropriate credit for the master's thesis. The core required courses in the Human Computer Interaction graduate program include three foundation courses: I E 574 "Interaction Techniques for Emerging Technologies," MIS 655 "Organizational and Social Implications of Human Computer Interaction," and Psych 521 "Cognitive Psychology of Human Computer Interaction."
All programs of study for the Ph.D. must include 1) the threee core HCI courses listed above, if not completed as part of the student's masters program; 2) one or more research methods courses; and 3) a minimum of 6 additional courses (18 credits) spanning both the student's primary area of specialization and HCI-related courses necessary to provide additional background relevant to the student's research.
Information on applications procedures and specific requirements of the major can be obtained from the following Internet address: www.hci.iastate.edu.
