No, you don’t. Any education or relevant experience is helpful, but nothing suggests that you’ll do better with a degree at this point. The trick is getting plenty of experience under your belt.[quote=“sara_allen730, post:121, topic:2229”]
a BA in business to psychology to computer design. So I’m a little confused on how so many can have different degrees yet the same job title.
Because UX isn’t a single job. There are people that a researchers, others are designer or analysts. They all still work ‘in UX’ but specialise in very different aspects.
In this context, a portfolio is a collection of your work, demonstrating your process as well as the outcomes. Here are some of my favourite examples: http://uxmastery.com/10-inspiring-ux-portfolios/
That depends on what you mean by experience. You can use fictitious projects or ones that you did pro bono.
Does that help?
