As of January 28th, 2008, I am a 22-year-old senior at a small liberal arts college, counting down the days until I graduate and become a small liberal artist.* I’ll be receiving a B.A. in computer science and psychology, and I am hoping to be accepted to a master’s program in human-computer interaction. Wikipedia has a passable description of HCI, though I am definitely interested in the broader interdisciplinary aspects captured in the article on human-centered computing.
One day I hope to work in software design, designing and testing software interfaces. But then, before I finally bowed to my father’s insistence and took a programming course my junior year of high school, I was convinced that the world of programming was not for me. So maybe I’ll take one of these fancy classes at these fancy schools I’m applying to (assuming any of them accept me) and discover a whole new twist to explore. It’s cool, I’m a not a rigid planner.
*Small and liberal, I’ve got covered. Artist is…in the eyes of the beholder.
