I already have my undergrad in marketing but really want to study industrial design. I thought about interaction design but didn’t want to just limit myself to computers and interfaces and coding isn’t my favorite thing to do.
I live and work part time in the NYC area so I started looking into Pratt but they recommend applying to the Grad program since I already have a degree. I have read plenty of these boards and the consensus suggests getting a Bachelors in ID first b/c a Masters doesn’t really go into the foundations, especially since the last art class I took was in high school. I read somewhere that there may be Grad prep classes at Pratt but I am going to be taking drawing classes at community college this fall to work on portfolio prep for my application.
Should I take the Grad prep classes and apply for the MID or stick with the cheaper drawing classes and apply for a BID? Also, can anyone recommend any other ID programs in the NY area? Or should I look into all those other ones like CCA, Art Center, University of Cincinatti, RISD etc? Cost, location, portfolio and internship opportunities are my biggest concerns…
