November 8, 2016

Wilfrid Laurier University will offer a new User Experience Design degree at its Brantford campus next fall, thanks to recent approval from the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development. Capitalizing on a partnership with Conestoga College, the program will see students take courses from both institutions at the WLU Brantford campus and earn both a Bachelor of Design and a graduate certificate in Interactive Media Management within four years. “I am very excited that Laurier can now offer this innovate, in-demand degree to the community and beyond,” said Heidi Northwood, WLU Dean of Liberal Arts. “We are in a unique position to deliver both the knowledge and essential skills honed through study of the liberal arts ... and the hands-on applied skills that inform practices associated with improving products, services and interactive content.” WLU
