Undergraduate programs for HcI, HCC, and Informatics

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–

ISCED classification of Interaction design

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to categorize and classify Interaction design in ISCED (International Standard Classification of Education)?

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 categorized Industrial design as Technical education. I have still 11 days left to appeal against their decision. 

I am really thankful for any nugget of information.

Ph.D in UX related field (e.g. HCI) - Wil it be helpful enough as investment?

How do you think about Ph.D in UX related field (e.g. HCI or Interaction Design)?

There are many discussions going around in academia but some professionals has complained that the researches are not useful enough to apply to the working process for real products. They argues that the academia cannot lead the innovation for the next 5~10+ years any longer, and that sometimes they are even behind the industrial world.

Qualifications for Interaction Designers

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.

New to the field-- Advice?

Hey guys,

My name's Noah Ruede, and I'm a 22-year-old aspiring Interaction Designer.

I 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.

IxD/ Human Centered Design Curricula and Philosophy

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.
