Getting into UX research

Hi everyone,

I'm a recent psych graduate and I'm wondering how people have transitioned from academic research in the social sciences to UX research. To those who have done it, what are the similarities and differences between the two areas of research (in terms of skills required, working environment, work life, etc.)? What were the steps you took to break into UX research? I'm thinking of applying to HCI masters programs like CMU, DePaul, and UMich. Are there other schools I should consider if I'd only like to be conducting UX research?


HCI Masters Programs: Georgia Tech v. Indiana Purdue v. Indiana Bloomington

Hello everyone. I am a soon-to-be HCI graduate student who is looking for some input and comments about certain M.S. in HCI programs that I have been accepted into. Before I talk about the schools, let me say a few things about my intended career path.

KABK Netherlands and other IxD schools

I'm (still) looking for formal training in interaction/type design. I
noticed the KABK in Hague has a new course titled Interaction - Media -
Anyone here studied/is studying at KABK or in the Netherlands? I'm
interested in how things go around there in the field.

Also, what other good schools in Europe teach this kind of thing?
