Hey guys! I’m brand new to the UI/UX world and I’d like to get some helpful insight as to what my next steps should be! I recently graduated from university with a BA in economics, and realized my interests have changed and have now found a new calling! I have applied to a few web-design programs starting in the Fall, but my first question is, do you guys think I should complete a 1-2 year program in university/college or should I take some online courses that I can complete in 6 months?
My goal right now is to learn as much as possible about UI/UX in the shortest time-frame so that I can start my portfolio and start gaining some experience. Any tips, comments or advice? Thanks guys!
