  • FEASIBILITY REPORT Of Nathan Pasch attending a graduate program to receive his M.F.A. in graphic design. Authored by Jarid Johnson I Dec. 8, 2008 I Final Report
  • OVERVIEW Nathan Pasch will be graduating from the University of Minnesota in spring 2010 with a B.S. in graphic design. He is debating attending graduate school for design after he finishes his undergraduate.
  • OVERVIEW Nathan Pasch will be graduating from the University of Minnesota in spring 2010 with a B.S. in graphic design. He is debating attending graduate school for design after he finishes his undergraduate. This feasibility report researched and analyzed where pasch will take his life in the next few years.
  • CLIENT Nathan Pasch
  • CLIENT Nathan Pasch grew up in the Midwest and has attended the University of Minnesota his whole undergraduate career. He has been a graphic design major since he enrolled.
  • CLIENT Nathan Pasch grew up in the Midwest and has attended the University of Minnesota his whole undergraduate career. He has been a graphic design major since he enrolled. He will be finished in the spring of 2010 and will either have to go out into the workforce or go onto further educate himself in the field through more schooling. What should he do?
  • PURPOSE This study was conducted to answer the question: What should Pasch do?
  • PURPOSE This study was conducted to answer the question: What should Pasch do? This feasibility report deduced the best path to take at this point in time.
  • PURPOSE This study was conducted to answer the question: What should Pasch do? This feasibility report deduced the best path to take at this point in time. – The best path financially.
  • PURPOSE This study was conducted to answer the question: What should Pasch do? This feasibility report deduced the best path to take at this point in time. – The best path financially. – The best path for use of time.
  • PURPOSE This study was conducted to answer the question: What should Pasch do? This feasibility report deduced the best path to take at this point in time. – The best path financially. – The best path for use of time. – The best path for his career.
  • PROBLEM STATEMENT Nathan Pasch will be graduating from his undergraduate program in just over one year. He has been thinking about graduate school, but does not know where to look are exactly begin looking for what is best for his future.
  • PROBLEM STATEMENT Nathan Pasch will be graduating from his undergraduate program in just over one year. He has been thinking about graduate school, but does not know where to look are exactly begin looking for what is best for his future. “What should Nathan do with his schooling/career after he receives his B.S. in graphic design? Should he attend MCAD or UMD in a graduate graphic design program? Should he not even go to graduate school?”
  • RESEARCH METHODS Designers & design faculty at MCAD & UMD were interviewed, because they knew best about the field and programs offered.
  • RESEARCH METHODS Designers & design faculty at MCAD & UMD were interviewed, because they knew best about the field and programs offered. The websites and catalogues of the two schools were also read and analyzed, to compare the attributes and statistic of both.
  • FINDINGS • MCAD Tuition is $64,000 for the whole program, almost double UMD.
  • FINDINGS • MCAD Tuition is $64,000 for the whole program, almost double UMD. • UMD would take 2.5 years, where MCAD only takes 2.
  • FINDINGS • MCAD Tuition is $64,000 for the whole program, almost double UMD. • UMD would take 2.5 years, where MCAD only takes 2. • MCAD allows total creation of M.F.A. from the ground up. The students make the classes and projects, with a mentor and their own studio.

The students make the classes and projects, with a mentor and their own studio. • UMD is a state school with a lot of resources, one can cross many different disciplines.

  • RECOMMENDATION Nathan should learn from others who have went before you.
  • RECOMMENDATION Nathan should learn from others who have went before you. He should take time off after his undergraduate degree is finished and get into the workforce to narrow his scope within design. This will allow for time to find some goals and for Pasch to become most prepared for the program; He will get the most out of it and will be able to put the most into it.

This will allow for time to find some goals and for Pasch to become most prepared for the program; He will get the most out of it and will be able to put the most into it. Though it may seem vague and over general to do this, after the few years off in the field he will be able to re-access his situation and find the best graduate program for him within his specified area of study.
