With jobs set to double, YorkU launches UX certificate

April 4, 2019

Anticipating a boom in the industry, York University is launching a certificate in User Experience through its Continuing Studies program. A release states that the eight-weekend program is geared toward professionals in graphic and web design, web development, consulting, and business strategy, and that it will focus on UX design best practices, methodologies, and systems. “With changes in technology shaping what employers are looking for when they hire, the need to close the impending skills gap is critical. Our graduates leave our programs with the deep skills they need to excel in their job functions, as well as the broader skills to collaborate across teams and affect lasting change within their organizations,” said Tracey Taylor-O'Reilly, Assistant Vice-President of Continuing Studies. Newswire (ON)
