Media Arts


The Intermedia concentration within the Media Arts major offers a rigorous program of study for students who intend to build interdisciplinary work through combined media, emerging media and conceptual inquiry. This encourages students to synthesize critical thinking, making, and research in the context of contemporary culture and creative practices.

With thematically diverse coursework, the curriculum emphasizes both theory and practice, presenting broad cultural perspectives in art-making throughout the program. Working with innovative and supportive faculty, visiting artists and scholars, students engage in a course of study that combines the conceptual, technical, and historical structures of traditional and contemporary art disciplines.
