  4. I have a major that -- while titled "Visual Communication Design" -- has been award-winning interaction designers (and service designers) for many years. Recently, some of our competitors have launched "interaction design" programs separate from their visual communication / graphic design programs. I loathe to separate my program as I believe that interaction design has to be taught holistically, with input from visual communication design, spatial design, and industrial design -- but am mindful that if I want to compete, I may need to fly an "interaction design" flag that is separate from communication design. Thoughts about this? Anyone looking to separate or create a new major? What value is there to teaching interaction design separate from other disciplines? (Note: this question is a shameless repost from another forum)
