Last year I posted a thread on this list asking about master's programs. My
perspective was changed by the responses I received, reorienting my ideas of
what I want to get out of school. I'm proud to say that i've been accepted
into the Interactive Telecommunications graduate program at NYU! I visited
the program last Fall and it was AMAZING. Dozens of classes on the bleeding
edges of technology with an emphasis on collaboration.

I'm planning on focusing on getting my interaction design skills finely
honed along with classes in mobile applications, multitouch development,
sustainable energy, the list goes on! :)

I'm still working on the details of how i'm going to pay for the program. If
anybody knows of a company that would be willing to give me a grant (or
other aid) in exchange for work later on (or intern work), please let me
know.

Thanks again IxDA! I am EXCITED!

Sincerely,
Michael Martinez-Campos

I am envious! Going to class in a loft in the Village! Does it get
better than that?

I'm rather envious of your proximity to Tweenbots, the phenomenon
that introduced me to ITP. What a brilliant project.

Congratulations, Michael.

Hi Michael,

I am looking into applying for NYU's ITP program. I guess I stumbled upon your post while creating one of mine. Since two years have elapsed and I'm guessing that you have finished your tenure in the program, how was it? 
I don't have any design background myself (coming from an English/Psychology double major in undergrad) and am wondering if the program is easily accessible to someone without too much technical knowledge.

Also, did you find any grants to pay for your education? Or any resources you might be able to point me to? If so, I'd love to take a look, because I am also wondering about how to pay for school. 

Thanks!
Miranda
