For Future Artists & designers

Digital technology has radically altered the ways in which we understand, create and consume media arts. The courses offered through the Digital Media Arts department provide opportunities for young artists and designers to develop the formal and technical skills that will enable them to create works that engage and challenge a changing society.

Senior show 2021 is now live!

Celebrate the Digital Media Arts graduating class of 2021!
