Media Arts

Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA)

Media Arts is a cross-disciplinary program that reflects the rise of new imaging technologies in studio practice, the expansion of artistic creativity within the digital domain, and the cultural impact of such media. The major is designed to meet the needs of art students interested in the use of digital technology as a sophisticated artmaking tool within a broad, cross-disciplinary context. Central to the program is the interdepartmental cooperation and collaboration within the art school between new media and traditional art disciplines. The program combines offerings in studio practice and critical studies of media within the visual arts in the Video/Moving Image, Visual Communication Design, Photography, and Illustration departments, including sculptural installation, performance art, and Internet projects. This approach provides students with a critical and historical knowledge of the field and technical proficiency in a number of disciplines, and it encourages them to define new artistic directions for themselves and the field in general.
