A particular strength of the program lies in its collaborations with other graduate departments. Throughout the program, students will have the opportunity to work in multidisciplinary environments where they will work in teams with other majors, understand team dynamics and leadership, and gain real-world experience.
PhilaU's User Experience & Interaction Design program has established a large network of interactive design professionals affiliated in and outside of the Philadelphia area in order to create a community comprised of freelancers, artists, businesses, design firms, publishing houses, and many other organizations.
This network is a vital asset to the program has supported students in a wide variety of ways. It has helped establish standards in the curriculum, provide jobs and internships for students, and has facilitated conferences, events and lectures on and off campus.
