Bachelors in Design / Bachelors in Psychology : for Masters in IxD


I'm 26. I dropped out of electronics engineering in my final year. 
After that i have worked in the field of Interface Design for 2 years.

With things evolving at the pace that we see, I feel there will be need to take a masters in interaction design course a few years down the line. But since i dropped out, i will need a bachelor's degree and i can't give up work for financial reasons.

Getting into UX research

Hi everyone,

I'm a recent psych graduate and I'm wondering how people have transitioned from academic research in the social sciences to UX research. To those who have done it, what are the similarities and differences between the two areas of research (in terms of skills required, working environment, work life, etc.)? What were the steps you took to break into UX research? I'm thinking of applying to HCI masters programs like CMU, DePaul, and UMich. Are there other schools I should consider if I'd only like to be conducting UX research?
