Digital + Media (D+M) operates at the nexus of art and technology, creating a framework for students to discover emergent creative practices and make research-driven, critically-informed work. Offered at the graduate level only, the program encourages degree candidates to explore many mediums, such as sound, land and the body, and to challenge the social constructs that produce and are enforced by new technologies.


Digital + Media alumni pioneer new modes of artistic inquiry, pursuing rewarding work in cutting-edge research, academics, studio practice and more. Many graduates have contributed significantly to the advancement of the field of new media—as successful artists, experimental designers, writers and critics.
