Gradschool Hunt

The hunt for a gradschool continues. I’ve been searching through and About for stuff, and so far I’ve turned up five or six promising schools which offer Master’s degrees in graphic design, with a focus on interactive design and/or digital video.

I’m backing off from Carnegie-Mellon’s Human-Computer Interaction program. I don’t meet two of the three specific prerequisites for admission — programming experience and mathematical/statistics proficiency — and I have neither the time nor resources to pursue intensive training, either as a supplement to the program or on my own. Rather, I’m looking into a related program in the CMU School of Design, which seems more adequate to my goals.

Other schools considered: Art Center, New Mexico Highlands, Virginia Commonwealth, and Maryland Institute College of Art. More details soon.
