Nice blog entry by IxDA board member Dan Safer on "So You Want to Be an
Interaction Designer 2006". Worth sharing with those who don't know what we
do.

Good read, thanks for sharing!

Just wanted to add an undergraduate IxD program would be at Simon
Fraser University's Surrey Campus in British Columbia, Canada. They
have an Interaction Design major in their School of Interactive Arts
and Technology.

I just read the article and noted that it said there were no good
undergraduate interaction design programs. Having completed the Stanford
undergrad program in Interaction Design and then the graduate program, I
wanted to post it to the group.

Basically, you have two options at Stanford for undergrad in IxD:

Option 1: Major in Symbolic Systems with a focus on Interaction Design;
That's what I did. Awesome program. Prepared me with all the basics. It's
great.

Option 2: Individually designed major in Interaction Design. Some students
put the program together a few years ago and you can follow along. It is
similar to the Symbolic Systems program but has more product design in it.

Then, for grad...you can continue taking classes from the Stanford D School
and do one of the three things (1) Master's in Communications Media Studies
with focus on IxD (that's what I did) or (2) Master's in CS with focus on
IxD (not my first choice because it's techie, but has all the same IxD
classes that I took) or (3) Master's in Product Design which is the most
closely linked with the D school.
