My company is currently looking to bring in college recruits to our newly created user experience department. I was hoping we could go after field experienced or grad school candidates, but we're focusing on undergrad folks for now (HR related hiring quotas).

Does anyone know of colleges that are offering a BA, BS or whatever in interaction design / usability engineering / user experience planning or the related fields of study?

Additionally, if you were looking to hire recent college grads what backgrounds, skill sets, experiences would you be interested in?

Many thanks,
Mark
