HCI Modules

Overview of Modules


UCLIC postgraduate courses draw on knowledge from a number of background disciplines. All students pursue studies in the following topics, via lectures, practical work, group work, field studies, and so on. Most lectures should be regarded as keynotes suggesting profitable avenues in self-study, and lecturers are free to teach in novel and interesting ways as appropriate to the topic. All courses include exercises done individually or as group work, and will often involve experiments, data collection, discussions, presentations etc. From the 2016/17 Academic Year the structure of the course is changing. For more information please see our prospective students page.

The modules offered in 2015/16 are:

  • PSYCGI07 – Design Practice (Term 1)

The different courses are:

  • The MSc comprises 8 of these modules plus the MSc HCI-E Project (PSYCGI98)
  • The PgDip comprises 8 of these modules but not the MSc HCI-E Project (PSYCGI98)
  • The PgCert comprises any four from these modules except Design Experience 2 (PSYCGI12) or the MSc HCI-E Project (PSYCGI98)

The taught modules are assessed through practical work and individual coursework. Design Practice, Applied Cognitive Science and Perspectives on Design modules are assessed through written exam.
