Course description

The international Master's degree program "Human Computer Interaction" is a full-time, four-semester course designed for those who have completed a Bachelor's degree. As IT artefacts become integral to daily life and work, this program focuses on the design, implementation, acquisition, and evaluation of user-friendly and efficient software systems. A key aspect of the studies is the design of IT artefacts that support human activities. To achieve this, students need foundational skills in interaction techniques, especially for mobile and ubiquitous applications. The curriculum covers interface design, user-oriented design processes, usability standards, qualitative analysis methods, and integrated organization and technology development. In addition to these core subjects, the program includes required modules in media studies, media law, business administration, psychology, and art. The University of Siegen's active research in Human Computer Interaction ensures that students benefit from a close integration of research and teaching.

The lessons in the degree program are mostly held in English. Only few lectures can be heard in German. Therefore, sufficient skills in English must be documented by the applicants who have not acquired their study qualification in an exclusively English-speaking facility or who have English as their native language. The following evidence is accepted: TOEFL iBT (at least 94 points), IELTS (score 6.5 or better), Cambridge B2 First, Grade B (173+ points), PTE Academic (at least 58 points) or certificates that document language skills of level B2 according to the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Information Systems, Computer Science, Business Administration, Design, Psychology or Sociology or a comparable program with a relevant share of 60 ECTS credits from the above-mentioned subject areas, completed with a degree of 2.5 or better. 2) Applicants with Bachelor's degrees from other study areas should have a performance record from the disciplines of Business Information Systems, Computer Science, Business Administration, Design, Psychology or Sociology. The scope of results from the two areas in the Bachelor's degree program should be at least 60 ECTS credits in total. Any distribution is possible here. In this case, the underlying Bachelor's degree also must have been completed with a value of 2.5 or better. 3) Alternatively, a qualification equivalent to the Bachelor's degree can serve as the requirement for approval.
