Bachelors in Design / Bachelors in Psychology : for Masters in IxD
30 Nov 2013 - 2:18am
I'm 26. I dropped out of electronics engineering in my final year. After that i have worked in the field of Interface Design for 2 years.
With things evolving at the pace that we see, I feel there will be need to take a masters in interaction design course a few years down the line. But since i dropped out, i will need a bachelor's degree and i can't give up work for financial reasons.
A) I see the following options infront of me with distance learning.
1) Bachelors in Psychology. (Available from Indian University) - Will studying psychology be an advantage in HCI/IxD ? 2) Bachelors in Computer Applications. (Available from Indian University) 3) Bachelors in Design (Not availavle from any Indian University)
B) Forget about the degrees and do a certificate course in Interaction design later on. Here, i worry about being shortlisted due to other people with degrees taking the same course.
This question is open ended, At this is the only forum i will get the most meaningful answer. I request for help. Also earn karma :)
