If you’re thinking of taking up a UX/UI course for graduation, then you get a degree in design with a major in UX and UI design. If you want to take up a UX course after your graduation, normally it’s preferred if you have a previous degree in design or engineering (preferably, not essentially). Frankly, you could have any degree and still apply for a UX Design course; you might need to support your case with a good looking portfolio though. If you have a thirst and a passion for learning and trying out a different career path, you can enrol yourself in UX design course right after you’re done with college. If you don’t want to go the college route, there are plenty of online resources available for learning UX Design. You can check out the Interaction Design Foundation (IDF) beginner courses, HFI’s (Human Factors International) UX courses and certifications and other online platforms like Udemy, Coursera, Lynda, Udacity, CareerFoundry. All these programs and courses teach you the fundamentals of design. You can even take advanced courses as you become proficient with the basics of UX Design.
