Question about display of date select functionality

I need some help.

I am working on an application that requires the user to select a
start and stop date. This function is similar to a travel sites'
Depart Date and Return Date fields. The main difference is that we

that the user receives service.

I immediately wanted a calendar display because it provides context
to service periods and days of the week.

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.
