Hey everyone, I'm in the process of finding a masters program for Interactive Design and would like some opinions. I recently graduated with a BA in Psychology but want to persue a different path. I've found some masters programs that accept students from all backgrounds and would like to know what you think, as professionals, about them.

Seeing as my BA in Psych didn't open much options for employment, rather more of a stepping stone for a masters, I'm wondering if the courses are adequate enough to ensure I'll be qualified for an internship/job... or might real life experiences hold more value.

The two programs I'm looking at are:

Any advice would be helpful. Thanks so much!

Hi Samantha,

Welcome ... before I give people advice about programs I now point people to this article I wrote about thinking about IxD school.

Take a gander at it. It is really hard to advise people on best schools as it is a very individual thing.
