A while back, an IxDA member named pauric collected a list of schools
from the list with courses related to interaction design and mapped
them out. Here's the link:

A less impartial answer here:
Both of these have IxD masters programs right now.
Univ. of Maryland has a masters of Information Systems and IxD.
Bentley is Information and Human FActors
IIT has a masters in Product Design
There are many many HCI courses throughout the country.
In Europe IxD is easier to come by with great programs throughout the
continent. Here are a few:
Sweden: Malmo & Umea
Holland: Einhoven, Utrecht & Delft
Italy: Domus Academy
Denmark: Copenhagen Inst of Interaction Design
If English is a concern: I know that Umea teaches in English and that
Domus and Delft have English considerations of some kind. I haven't
looked into the others.
Asia: I only know of the program at Hong Kong Polytechnic Univ's
I don't know of any in Australia, but there are programs with IxD as
University of Baltimore: Interaction Design & Information Architecture
University of Maryland Baltimore County: Human-Centered Computing
> Univ. of Maryland has a masters of Information Systems and IxD.
Interaction design? Not the last time I checked. They are only recently
embracing more design in to their curriculum via special-topics courses.
Even their HCIL is CS-centric with little focus on design. It is, however, a
pretty good program for someone who wants to focus more on Information
