After 4 years of education (2 year degree) focused heavily around aesthetic graphical design, and some time in the professional industry as an interface (ux) designer, I have decided to continue moving forward with further education. My passion for design interaction, mental cognition, and technology, leads me to believe that further education is the most logical step towards growing in these areas of focus–
I was wondering if anyone knows how to categorize and classify Interaction design in ISCED (International Standard Classification of
I was denied the possibility to get a
scholarship for studying abroad, because they categorized Interaction
design as art, and
they don't give any art scholarships. But on the other hand they

Hello. I'm new to this site (as of 5 mins ago), and I've only recently heard the term 'Interaction Design' and discovered that in-fact this term applies to most of my body of work. I don't have any formal eductaion in Interaction Design specifically, but I have a BFA in Computation Art & Design (where this term was never ever discussed or even mentioned) and I have a diploma in general science with a major in psycology. I've been working in web for only about 3 years so I guess I'm a newbie.
My name's Noah Ruede, and I'm a 22-year-old aspiring Interaction Designer.
spent three years studying Communication at Rutgers University before
learning about IxD. I was immediately fascinated by the field, so much
so that I have decided to transfer instead to CUNY City Tech's "Emerging
Media Technology" major, with the Media Design concentration on the
Interaction Design track.
I am currently dealing with the question what students should be taught in in Interaction Design/ Human Centered Design and how the teaching should be done. For that reason I am in search for curricula and the philosophy behind them. Do you know of any resources?
For HCI there is e.g. the suggestion by the SIGCHI, which provides an extensive overview, but I could not find something like this for a design course.
