In this paper, we report on a series of ten interviews with students and faculty to describe cross-cultural connections between two UX-focused programs, one in China and one in the United States. Our study includes the perspectives of students who engaged in intercultural UX experiences, as well as the perspectives of the faculty who designed those student experiences through an inter- cultural partnership. We report on how each program was created, developed, and iterated upon, describing program goals and student experiences across both programs from student and instructor perspectives. We demonstrate the complexity of UX educational experiences on an international scale, concluding with opportunities for intercultural engagement and the potential for links among education, profession, culture, and pedagogy.
