DUE Wednesday, Sept 1, start of class

Reflection:  What Next?

Consider the discussion we had in class about 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 (including freelance work).  Your focus may be something we didn’t talk about or a combination of many ideas.  Describe how you think you will start making this goal happen and once you obtain them, how you see yourself balancing them.

 

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

 

THIS MUST BE TYPED and PRINTED OUT
