Interactive Media Design

Communication, with a concentration in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) provides both a theoretical and practical foundation in the study or interaction between people and computers and the phenomena surrounding them. The HCI concentration draws from computer science, cognitive psychology, social psychology, evaluation, design and several other fields of study. Current projects include NSF funded research on awareness technologies, mobile navigation in public spaces supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the NSF, and an NSF funded project on environmental applications.
