Parsons Design and Technology VS. SVA


Recommended Posts

So. Contrary to my feeling that I got into 0 of my schools, I happened to make it into two. I know SVA is more established with their Design MFA, but the Parsons D&T program does intrigue me. I have 0 background in coding, and I have a feeling that the design industry will start to become more and more digitalized. What do you guys think?

Also, mainly I'm concerned about jobs after I graduate. Which program do you think will make me the most competitive candidate? My BFA was in Visual Communications, so it was very print and old school graphic design based.

Well, the SVA Design MFA is a graphic design program pretty much. And the Parsons D+T program has hardly any graphic design unless you count web design as graphic design. You have to figure out what particular job you want in the design industry. Graphics + code = interaction design, which seems very hot right now. If that's what you're interested in, then go with Parsons.
