Next year, I'll be graduating from Vassar College with a degree in Latin American Studies. Sadly, I've realized over the past year that my future does not lie in a world of NGOs and/or academia per say but in design and typography. Vassar has a limited studio art program with no design courses, so I have not been able to learn all the necessary skills and software that I would need. I am proficient with Illustrator and Photoshop as I was raised around my family business of printing.
The big question is, should I go to another four year institution to get a BA in design? What other options do I have if I want to pursue a career in art and design? Is there a way to balance tuition and quality?
