An introduction to UX design

See website and app design in a new way 

Wireframe is a 10-week introductory course to User Experience Design, where you will develop a mindset to identify design problems and find creative solutions for them. You will be able to effectively communicate and defend your decisions along the way through understanding design principles, information architecture, and interaction design.

Create optimized products using prototyping tools

Through several projects centered around real-world design challenges, you’ll learn how to find solutions to problems and then go one step further and implement those ideas digitally. By the end of the course you will have polished projects on apps or product designs, and a better understanding of the user focused design industry.

Develop experience in design thinking

As the digital world continues to grow and become more prevalent, user-centered design becomes increasingly crucial for how we as humans interact with technology. This course will help you have a solid foundation in design thinking, whether you want to pursue a career in UX or use the principles in other industries to improve how users will interact with products or services.

Fees & Accessibility

Course Fee: $125

Each of our courses is just $125 — that’s less than a weekly lunch out for the semester. We are committed to making our courses accessible to all. We reduce or eliminate the program fee to all students who need it, no questions asked. Our aim is to enable everyone who wants to learn and join the HackCville community.

Meeting Times

All of our courses meet once a week for 2 hours. Courses start the third week of UVA classes (Sep 8) and continue weekly through the end of November. Courses expect a 4-6 hour/week commitment. Outside of the 2 hours in your workshop meeting time, you can expect to meet with your instructor weekly for check-ins (at flexible times) and to spend some time working with your classmates on projects.

We offer 2 sections of Wireframe — you’ll need to pick one when you register:
Section A – Tuesdays 5-7pm
Section B – Mondays 5-7pm


Wireframe made me feel like it was possible to design all sorts of things.
