UBC HCI Sub-specialization Courses

back to main page

The following is list of courses that have been used in the past to satisfy the course requirements for the HCI sub-specialization. The number of students who have claimed each course is listed for the first three categories, but not for the final (elective) category (many students listed more than one elective, so there not always a single course that can be identified as the one that was used to satisfy the requirements). In some cases courses appear to no longer exist.

The list is compiled from data for 31 students who completed the sub-specialization. This probably does not include the most recent students.
