Graduate: MFA

RISD's Digital + Media Department offers talented, intellectually engaged graduate students the opportunity to investigate innovative approaches to contemporary theory and practice in the digital arts. Structured to promote thought and work that crosses traditional lines between disciplines, the curriculum challenges students to consider non-standard approaches to the computer as a creative and expressive medium.

The study of technology, art and design is balanced with inquiry grounded in conceptual, critical, social, cultural and historical considerations. As leading practitioners in the field, Digital + Media faculty invite visiting artists and lecturers to campus to offer their perspectives on the latest trends in digital media production, and encourage students to engage in research and collaboration with other institutions.
