MFA: Interaction Design: Overview


This guide is designed to steer the Interaction Design student to Library resources that pertain specifically to their concentrations. If you are conducting research for a course outside of your department (e.g. Business), a different guide may be appropriate. The Library staff is also committed to helping you one-on-one for additional assistance.
