MFA D+T Bootcamp 2012

///General Information

Welcome Class of 2014,
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you all to the MFA Design and Technology program at Parsons. You are about to embark on an experience of a lifetime. You’ll discover things you never thought possible, make lasting friendships with an amazing group of peers and faculty members, and create an astonishingly body of work in a very short period of time.

The Bootcamp pre-orientation intensive is conceived to give you the survival skills you need to succeed in our rigorous program, begin making work right away, and establish the critical practice that embodies the MFADT program. Our goal is to create the conditions for you to work harder than you ever have before and bond the incoming class together by surviving it all together. We also hope to introduce you to the city, the school, some faculty, administration, the thesis-year candidates and, most importantly, each other.

Bootcamp is not equivalent to the regular semester experience. In fact, when classes begin, you’ll realize the resemblance is minimal. However, you will get a (robust) flavor of the program culture. If you have any questions or concerns during Bootcamp, connect with your Teaching Fellows and Ryan Raffa, director of Bootcamp.

I know you’ll have an amazing experience!
very best,
Dave
