In conjunction with the Media and Graphics Interdisciplinary Centre (MAGIC), EDCP (Media and Technology Studies) offers a Sub-specialization in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Human-Computer Interaction is an interdisciplinary field of study that explores human behaviour in technology-rich environments with the goal of informing the design and testing of new technologies. MAGIC does not grant degrees, however students earning degrees in participating departments can also earn a Sub-specialization in Human-Computer Interaction by successfully completing the Sub-specialization requirements listed below in addition to those necessary for their master’s degree. The goal of the Sub-specialization in HCI is to provide a structured way for students enrolled in various graduate programs to study and carry out research in HCI with guidance from relevant faculty advisers, and to bring interested students from different departments together in a graduate student community integrated into the general university research community.
The Department of Curriculum and Pedagogy offers a PhD concentration and MA and MEd specializations in Media and Technology Studies Education, a secondary Teacher Education (BEd) major in Media and Technology Studies Education and dual major in Computer Science, and Diploma Programs in Computing Studies Education and Media and Technology Studies Education.In conjunction with the Media and Graphics Interdisciplinary Centre (MAGIC), EDCP (Media and Technology Studies) offers a Sub-specialization in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI).
