MA Masters Graphic Design, ELearning

I feel that I am at an excellent point in my life for graduate study. I have found a great deal of peace, dedication, and attention to detail, and I believe strongly that my maturity and commitment will enable me to make a valuable contribution as an eLearning student in your program. I look forward to beginning your program in January 2008 and working towards an M.A. in Graphic Design. I was hired by the XXXX Technical College in July 2007 as their full-time graphic design instructor, part of my contract requires that I attain a Master's Degree and must be registered as a student within six months of my hire date. They will provide a specified amount of financial support for my graduate degree; In contrast, the cost of graduate courses at SCAD far exceeds the economic contribution of my employer; I am willing to contribute the balance to have this privilege of studying and receiving a Master's Degree from XXXX. I will be working full-time, and I plan on taking one course per semester; I see this as an excellent opportunity to advance my human growth and make the most of my artistic potential. I enjoy learning enormously and especially love to design projects. I made the Dean's List as an undergraduate student at XXXX and have done many exhibitions of my work, receiving numerous awards and honors as a graphic designer and photographer.

The preparation/research time that I put into preparing to teach Entry Level Design to my students is often the highlight of my day, the discovery, clarification, and mastery; I love to continually revisit the basics of design and learn new ideas and techniques. I see a graduate school with XXXX as an opportunity to continue to grow as a graphic designer and challenged to learn and develop my skills in a structured setting with ample peer critique. This will be my time to focus my creative vision on my projects, not something a client wants or a student needs, although my student's needs and interests will undoubtedly motivate me as well. I am especially interested in doing graduate work in graphic design combined with fine art as well s craft skills; I am particularly interested in handcrafted and pre-press book design. My long-term goal is to become a tenured instructor/professor. I am a woman of diverse interests, with some ability in German, and I also have 23 years of experience as a registered nurse, working in management for about 20 out of those 23 years. Since my time as a nursing manager.
