I'm studying graphic design at Cornwall College (UK) hoping to go on to do a BA in graphic design and get a job in the industry.

Degrees: Associate of Arts in Art and Associate of Arts in Business Administration
Degrees in progress: Bachelor of Arts in Studio (graphic design+photography) and Bachelor or Science in Art Marketing (both will be completed Fall '06)
Currently work for a department in the school doing video editing.
From what people have told me BFA to MFA for art students is good b/c they are "professional" degrees but if you are good and have a good portfolio and experience as far as internships and good contacts you can make it with a BA and an MA. A degree is pretty much a degree any way you slice it. My father has a Master's in history and what he does, which is government related, is not anything for what he went to school for.
I want to be a freelance photographer and own my own design company. I also want to own a gallery which focus on up and coming artists.

lil can I just ask, what made you do a degree in geography? You seem very into your computers. Whenever you answer one of my questions Iím sure that most of it's not in English! Did you ever consider a degree in computer science or something like that?

Hey there :flower:
If I got a pound for everyone who asked that, hehe. But I'll explain succinctly. This was not a decision of arrogance or "I am better than that", but I just felt a Computer Science Degree couldn't offer me anything I didn't already know or would soon learn, as it stands I can program in C, C++, Objective C, PHP, SQL, VisualBASIC, Visual BASIC for Applications and probably a whole kaboodle of defunct languages. My knowledge on databases is such that I wrote a whole system that now runs a successful business... And I have done all this without the need for a computer science degree.
Beyond this was my motivation for going to Uni' itself, it wasn't simply to expand my pay packet potential at the end of the day, I wanted to do something that I was deeply interested in and felt would expand me as a person in other ways. geography was that, I love learning about people, society and I adore travelling - I thrive on it. It was new, challenging and fresh, and ultimately for me more rewarding that sitting down in a room going through dumb ADA or Pascal programs I could do the computer bit in my own time whilst doing another degree that benefitted me as a person in ways that computer science would not have.
I'm good with computers, especially Macs, I like computers too, but my fingers remain in many pies :flower:
Vicky (...and that was the short answer...!)

It isn't Mac based but we have need of unix skills allied with strong programming in a wide variety of lingos, C, Ada, Perl etc. In particular we are currently attempting to persuade management that we need to embrace the web more fully by incorporating wikis and technical forums into our development arena and also to switch over to using UML based design tools allied with open source solutions for defect tracking and management (i.e BugZilla).
