Steve Zehentner:  Direction, Edit, 2nd Camera

Deciding to go back to school to pursue your dream career takes passion, courage, and perhaps a bit of insanity, but these Parsons alumni demonstrate the end result makes it all worthwhile. The Associates of Applied Science programs at Parsons The New School for Design are geared for professionals who are interested in a rapid immersion in the fields of Fashion Design, Fashion Marketing, Graphic Design, and Interior Design. 

Here, interior designer Caroline McKeough, graphic designer Jim Wagner, fashion designer Katie King, and brand assistant Rachel Demain talk about their experiences.  "People will tell you that you're crazy", is one of a suite of short student profiles designed to encourage enrollment at The New School by providing real information to prospective students and their parents regarding specific curricular and extra-curricular programs.

The New School is a leading progressive university in New York City offering some of the nation's most distinguished degree, certificate, and continuing education programs in art and design, liberal arts, management and policy, and the performing arts.
