I have a master's degree in Human-Computer Interaction. Now, I am working as a software developer and I am thinking of switching to working in the UX field. Does anyone know of practical UX courses that will increase my chance of getting a UX job? Are there any exams that I could take to get certified?

  • This question is very broad, there are probably thousands of courses. As you are a master of HCI I would say that should be all the certification you need. Apr 30 '18 at 12:29
  • @RobE I heard that the courses offered by "nngroup.com/ux-certification" are good. Apr 30 '18 at 12:32
  • The one HCI program I'm familiar with is well-suited for a UX job. Could you describe the ways you feel your degree is insufficient? Apr 30 '18 at 12:43
  • You might also describe what kind of UX job you're looking for. It's a broad field. Apr 30 '18 at 13:11

May I recommend the Nielsen Norman Group's certification.

These guys are gods when it comes to UX and I've attended one of their sessions and it was a great experience.

I agree with @Tarek, NN/g is a great organization and I am thankful for the foundation they helped me built.

I would like to bring Center Centre to your attention, too. It looks like an amazing program that is well suited for people who switch careers to the field of UX.

Good luck!
