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.

Broad range of courses

Hamline’s Digital Media Arts major is ideal for future artists, designers, makers, and professionals who will become immersed in the vanguard of current and developing media arts practices, such as audio-visual installation, net art, interactive media design, performance, 3D printing, sound art, and physical computing. Department faculty are engaged with emerging digital media forms and theory, which positions students on the leading edge of a rapidly evolving media arts landscape.

LABS & Equipment
