Has anyone taken the Professional Program in UX Design from UC Berkeley Extension?


I’m currently researching programs for UX development and have found that UC Berkeley Extension offers a program in UX, based out of San Francisco. Has anyone taken this program or heard anything about it? I’ve seen only a small handful of reviews for this particular program (which were good) but have also seen many reviews for UC Berkeley Extension that were not exactly favorable.

While it is one of the few places I haven’t taught, I have heard mixed reviews. :slight_smile:
I have mentored a few people from the program and they all were struggling with their portfolio. For two reasons: one, you are required to code it from scratch as part of the program, and two, the classes have individual assignments and very few projects so it was hard to tell a coherent story in a case study. The people I mentored didn’t all have real projects (required to get your own) so that was a little difficult as well.

This is a good reminder to add this to my chart. :slight_smile: https://www.juliad.com/blog-1/which-ux-career-accelerator-should-i-go-to.
