Graduate Programs

While were on the subject of higher education..

Is anyone familiar with the M.S. in Interaction Design and Information
Architecture from the University of Baltimore? After speaking with the
director, the program is fairly new and has a very interesting curriculum.

As we have been discussing, there are different motivators why one may go
to school.
