Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Interactive Arts and Media

Interactive Arts and Media BFA students learn to integrate image, sound, motion, story and interactivity to create compelling new media works using emerging technologies. Students develop technical, design and conceptual skills to create new forms of digital art and storytelling that emphasize process and experimentation. Technical and aesthetic approaches are grounded in analysis, research and creative problem solving.

The BFA program stresses the importance of theory and research so that students may confidently analyze and author new media cultures, ideas and objects. Students learn to create new technology-based work that builds upon the traditions and aesthetics of new media and interactive theory. By mastering the latest in tools and technologies, while working both independently and as a collaborating team member, students experience numerous opportunities to exhibit work publicly. In addition, they will gain an understanding of the role of curation in the planning, design and implementation of new media productions and exhibitions. Students graduate with a body of work and a professional digital portfolio, fully prepared for careers or postgraduate study as new media or interactive artists.
