About the MFA program

The Studio Art and the Computer MFA provides students an opportunity to inform and enhance their artistic practice using twenty-first century electronic media – not just as new tools for creation and display, but as new means of perception and experience. The emphasis on electronic media encompasses the many ways in which technology intersects with contemporary art and design. Students in the program are invited to combine their backgrounds in traditional art or computer-related disciplines within a conceptually driven, interdisciplinary environment. Courses provide exposure to time-based media, performance art, video art, sound works, kinetic sculpture, computer-based art, and art using the Internet. Students entering this program should be interested in critical exploration of the international dialogue of contemporary art and should be intent upon developing innovative concepts within their own creative work. Full-time students who are interested in becoming practicing artists, college instructors, and industry innovators will flourish in this creative, integrative, and interdisciplinary studio environment.
