Whether you’re interested in filmmaking, animation, game design, manga, virtual reality
or emergent digital art forms, the media arts program prepares you to be a creator
in tomorrow’s media industries.
Learn to make what you see.
Everywhere you look, you see screens. You're used to movie theaters, television and
the web. But the screens around you are proliferating. Walk down the street in any
city and you'll see them. Go into any art gallery and they are there. We even carry
screens in our pockets.
Someone has to decide what populates those screens and what they communicate. Someone
has to make them relevant. Someone needs to make them beautiful. A degree in media
arts will teach you how to do that.
Our students learn versatility.
Successful makers are flexible and adaptable. There are programs all over the country
that can train you to follow instructions, but building a sustainable career means
realizing your own visions.
We prepare agile, independent artists—makers who are ready to succeed as workers and
partners, and as innovators and entrepreneurs.
Our students are already doing meaningful work.
While you're reading this, our students are performing motion capture for a new video
game on our green screen stage. Companies across the country have our seniors in valuable
internships. Our students are showing their films at festivals. Our alumni are working
on productions across the nation, and are even starting their own businesses.
