Masters Programs in the DC Area

I'm on the verge of taking a job in the DC area and wanted to know if there
were any good programs in the area for UX or Interaction Design. Any help or
advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Question on Labs

I know this is the kind of question that probably gets posted all the
time, but I wasn't able to find an answer searching the archives, so
here goes!

Has anyone used a lab in the New York City area that they'd recommend
for usability testing? We need something that will allow about 12-20
observers of one-on-one testing with some level of formality (video,
logging, etc). We'd be using Morae but I know some labs don't let you
bring in video equipment so that you use theirs...

Of course, we're looking for something that's no too expensive.
