Looking for insight on graduate programs in Interaction Design

I have recently been looking into the possibility of interaction design as a career choice, and I was wondering what sort of graduate school programs would be open to me. I have been perusing the discussion boards, but it seems as though there aren't very many conversations about this in the past couple of years about it so I was wanting to get an updated perspective.

Grad School: HCDE vs. HCI/d vs. Digital Media

I've recently been admitted to the Human Centered Design & Engineering MS program at University of Washington.  I was also admitted into the HCI/d program at Indiana University - Bloomington.  Still waiting on a decision from the Digital Media program at Georgia Tech.  

SO: if I was to get into all three programs,  which should I choose?  I'm leaning towards HCDE at UW at the moment - i want to be an Interaction designer if that helps...  

Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated!  Esp. if you went to one of these schools!

1 year IxD program - thoughts?


Hello All -

I applied to a program that fits many of my needs and wants, but I would love to hear what IxDers think of the course of study. I haven't seen the program mentioned in other threads.

It's a 1 year program in Interaction Design (culminating in a M.A.S) at the Swiss university SUPSI. It's aimed at professionals who want to shift careers.
