I’m also wondering what I actually should study as a person trying to get into UI/UX with a BA in Psychology, haha. I’m reading Design of Everyday Things and Don’t Make Me Think, along with watching some videos on YouTube, and I’ve also been on the usability.gov site. I also have some friends marketing a device (with Disney) who might at the very least give me an internship in the area of User Experience so I can have some resume experience and portfolio material. I’m seeing some articles on getting UI/UX jobs with little to no experience, but I still need to know some of the actual content of a typical degree so I have more than just my intuition to go on, haha.
Thank you everyone, especially Quincy, for all the great lessons and help you provide! People’s stories alone are so inspiring!
