PART I

Reflection:  What Next?

Consider the discussion we had about the three possible paths you may take as you make the transition from a digital arts major in school to the outside world.  Write a reflection on which direction you see yourself taking; one of the three, a combination, or something different.  Recall we talked about graduate school, digital art in the traditional arts world (including marketing yourself), and going into industry.  Your focus may be something we didn¹t talk about or a combination of many ideas.  Describe how you think you will start and how you will balance your goals.

 

Next, reflect on what you see yourself doing in ten years.
