Choose a Specialization

We found that including this feature sets our graduates apart from other new UX designers entering the field. You can also opt to take more than one specialization (for an additional fee).

"I found the curriculum excellent. Even from before the course itself began, I found the course prep section really helpful. I really liked that there was a great balance between theory and practical applications and really have to congratulate on the structure of the course, building as it does from an intro to the tools and moving onward on each task to more complex themes. The platform I found really easy to use, intuitive and nicely designed."



Build an impressive portfolio

 

Each of the three projects that you’ll complete spans multiple parts of the UX design process and will provide you with a rich array of portfolio pieces to showcase to potential employers. These include everything from user personas to your first pencil wireframe sketches, usability testing plans, and final, polished, high-fidelity designs.

"I think one of the most important parts of the CF program is the unified community of like-minded individuals all in the middle of bettering themselves and working on their own career change. It creates this social web of support where anyone can reach out at any time for help. I started out new and overwhelmed at first, but seeing how supportive everyone was then and now is definitely something that I really appreciate. I’ve made a lot of tangible connections and friends with current students and past alumni this way and see tremendous value in it."
