The curriculum in New Media requires 122 credit hours. Students are trained in the production and critique of works for art or design that explore forms and technologies identified as new or emerging. Students receive instruction in technical execution, formal composition, historical precedents and theoretical framing. Advanced course work produces both assigned and self-directed projects that utilize time-based, interactive, physically networked and performative media, and address emerging practices in art and design.
