i know this is a really boring topic til now…
but is that ux degree really matter?

or just focus on building a badass porfolio? but is that possible learn any knowledge from the book?
that’s not so many school have related course…probably just one has a HCI course… but well money issue…

so well just confusing how to start… book a online courese?

Heh. Not boring, but it is something that we’ve talked about a few times already.
Have a read through some of these discussions and come back if you still have questions. Happy to talk it out further.

Hi K,

I 100% agree with what Hawk has said above and that link is also super duper useful.

I will tell you though coming from someone who hasn’t gotten a degree in anything and has avoided any form of formal college like the plague, it has its positives and negatives.

I however will try to go the no degree route and in this field it is definitely obtainable just by searching the web and seeing others who have done it with some time put in and maybe a boot camp under their belt!
