What I've done in my academic career...
As said by some of the greats:
“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.” ― Henry Ford
“Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.” ― Albert Einstein
Took the Cooper U UX Boot Camp for Interaction Design in San Fransisco.
Took the few credits that cared over from Herron and continued to finish my degree in a slightly pivoted direction, focusing more on web and product design.
My first college. After finishing 3 full years I decided I wanted more of a focus in web and product design, so I transferred to The Art Institute.
