Are you ready to join a new generation of user experience designers? Fast forward two years into your future…

You’ve become the future of User Experience. You’ve transformed your knowledge of UX into meaningful and practical skills. You are an industry-ready UX designer. And you did this just in two years. Incredible! We want to thank you for being an awesome unicorn.
Here’s what happened because of your dedication to learning and leadership:
  1. During two-day industry-grade workshops held every three weeks, you learned from the best-of-the-best experts in our industry. The workshops totally rocked, which made processing the materials super fun and the content easier to retain. Not only did you practice and learn an incredible amount of relevant content but you built relationships with leading UX professionals.
  2. After each workshop, you spent time working one-on-one with facilitators on an individual mastery project to put your new skills into practice. You completed projects—customized for you—that helped you grow the skills you’ll need to effectively participate and lead on team projects.
  3. You led your fellow students through a real-life team project. Your facilitator coached you through tough decisions. You learned about what your clients needed. With your team, you learned to work within professional constraints and how to overcome obstacles. Your team created a solution that really helped people. Because of this, you are industry-ready with real experience to offer to an employer.
  4. It was hard at first but you worked with your facilitators and other teammates to assess your own progress and that of your team. Using written and verbal reflections, you grew and thrived. You developed the ability to identify a problem and work quickly to create the best solution.
  5. You woke up every morning and asked yourself: How am I going to make awesomeness and do good today? Then, you applied your answers to your work and helped create an exciting and stellar design environment—an environment that supported both your individual excellence and collaborative greatness.
  6. Our facilitators, your fellow students in your cohort, and the rest of the team at Center Centre thank you for your dedication. We are thrilled you’ve joined our community and we look forward to hearing your updates as you progress in your career as a UX designer.

Now back to today:

Center Centre is a brand new school to create the next generation of industry-ready UX designers. We’re accepting students into our two-year on-site program.
If you’d like this to be your story, you should apply. If you are ready to shift careers, a current design professional who wants to expand into a UX generalist, or a designer/geek right out of school, and would love to be part of a new approach to design education, then you should strongly consider applying to be a Center Centre student.

To attend Center Centre, you must meet these criteria:

  • You’re a US citizen or a permanent resident. We can’t accept international students into our program right now.
  • You’re 18 years of age or older by the time courses begin.
  • You have a high school diploma, GED, or HiSET.
  • You’re able to write, read, and speak fluent English.
  • You’re tenacious, you possess a strong work ethic, and you’re a lifelong learner.
  • By the time courses start, you live conveniently close to Center Centre in Chattanooga, Tennessee, as this is a full-time, on-site program. We don’t provide online courses, and we don’t support remote students.

What to expect

We’re looking for applicants who are tenacious learners, applicants who are curious about people and technology, and applicants who are eager to work with a dynamic team of students—applicants like you.
Our admissions process includes multiple interviews and reference checks. Because this process takes time, we encourage you to apply now while we still have openings for the first cohort available.
We have a rolling admissions process—you can apply now to be a Center Centre student for future cohorts.
