Master’s in Interdisciplinary Media
The two-year MFA in Interdisciplinary Media is a 48-hour online terminal degree that credentials graduates to teach at the college level or work as professionals in the field. Skills in software, digital, and traditional media are in high demand. Because of the emergence of new media, as well as the blending of digital and traditional media, this degree helps prepare students from a variety of art and design backgrounds with the most up-to-date media, history, and theory coursework – and culminates in a final portfolio.
The move away from specializing in one specific medium in the visual arts began over a decade ago, and the emergence of new media and blending of the digital with traditional media continues. The 2-year MFA in Interdisciplinary Media Arts is a terminal degree in the fields of art and design that integrates contemporary artistic practice with studies in art, design, and media production, history, and theory. Students in this terminal degree program spend a first year exploring interdisciplinary approaches to making media as an artistic practice while becoming familiar with the contemporary media art landscape. The second year is dedicated to their own final portfolio and thesis report.
