Only yesterday, Maria Vinogradova (MS 2008) was accepted to the PhD Program in Cinema Studies at New York University. Since she graduated from Pratt in the Spring of 2008, she has spent two years in her home town – St.Petersburg, Russia, but is looking forward to returning to New York. She says, “The knowledge that I got at Pratt was decisive in preparing me for further graduate study, and I am really grateful for this experience!”
