Part 3: 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, computer art in
the traditional arts world (including marketing yourself), and going into industry. Your focus may be something
we didnšt 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.
The writing can be a free flow of ideas, but should be well written.
MUST BE TYPED.
