    Grad School Blues

    Greetings folks!

    I am graduating with my undergraduate degree from University of Wisconsin Parkside with a digital illustration degree and to get to the point I am looking for 2 more years of classrooms. I want a graduate degree, no questions asked. So here's the question:

    If you could go to any graduate program in the world, where would you go? You can tell me why if you want, but you do not have too.

    Thanks for any input! Good luck!

    Might help if you mentioned what you want to get a graduate degree in, assuming this is asking for advice

    I agree. CMU's ETC. Don't they also offer a B.A. in the ETC as well?

    No, unless they've added one very recently.


    Edit: I checked; they do not offer a BA at the ETC. However, they do have some interdisciplinary classes at the undergraduate level.

    I'm becoming more and more interested in the Hartford Limited Residency Illustration MFA. It's open for professionals with a minimum of 2 years experience in the field, but it is definitely something I am looking into for the future (and in fact, has made me work harder to kickstart my goals)

    Just on the odd chance that you might want to pursue something else in the arts world after finishing your undergrad in Illustration (and some people do for the diversity of it all), check here:
