I am in need of some advice from the experienced mentors in IxDA. I am currently attending the University of Kansas working on my MA in Interaction Design. I am at a fork in by education trying to determine if I should complete my MA this fall or continue on for an additional 22 hrs and complete my MFA in Interaction Design. My work experience is limited to graphic design and marketing so I have no employment based IxD experience.
As potential hiring managers which degree would be more employable? Would it be more advantagous to graduate this fall and find a position in IxD or continue my education for an additional 18 months then seek IxD employment?
