User Experience (UX) Concentration:
The UX concentration teaches students how to design usable, useful, and desirable digital interfaces from a user-centered perspective. Drawing primarily from the Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) discipline, students in the UX concentration will be trained in the methods used to understand users and their contexts and apply that knowledge to the design and evaluation of interactive technologies for libraries, archives, museums, and beyond. Coordinated by Pratt SILS Assistant Professor Craig M. MacDonald (http://www.craigmacdonald.com/).

Digital Humanities (DH) Concentration:
Coordinated by Pratt SILS Assistant Professor Chris Alen Sula (http://chrisalensula.org/), the DH concentration addresses the range of issues involved in digital humanities, from digitizing primary sources and creating content systems to analyzing data and exploring new platforms for research and publication. By the end of the concentration, students are able bring skills in digitization, preservation, metadata, analysis, and technology into academic settings to support faculty and institutional teaching and research. They are also prepared to serve as thought leaders at cultural heritage institutions in the area of digital scholarship and public programming.
