Interaction Design as a worldwide-acceptedprofession

You would probably be better off finding a good Industrial Design program. They tend to be more diverse and multidimensional. Many graphic design and industrial design programs are either divided between studio skills and design thinking... but the ID schools, in general, seem to be ahead of the curve. A lot of the undergraduate programs in the US are still focused on cranking our graphic artists... that have computer software skills.

Interaction Design as aworldwide-accepted profession

One of the founding propositions of IxDA is that IxD is a discipline that
can be practiced within many professional contexts. People who practice IxD
have many titles, including "Interaction Designer", "Usability Engineer",
"Information Architect" Cat Wrangler, Butterfly Herder, etc.

We decided to focus IxDA on the development of the discipline, and to
support anyone else who was interested in doing so, regardless of title.

Interaction Design as a worldwide-accepted profession

Hi (first post ^_^ ),

There are some people that want to start a useful profession as an
Interaction Designer. I think it should be a career on its own right, not a
hybrid graphic design/software engineering pseudo-career.

Currently (at least where I live, Costa Rica), there's not one single
University that teach Interaction Design as one profession.
