MFA in Transmedia DesignUniversity of Tennessee, Knoxville
Application deadline for assistantship
and scholarship consideration: January 15, 2013
The Transmedia Design program, a merger of the Graphic Design and 4D graduate programs within the School of Art, is seeking interested applicants for its inaugural year. The three-year MFA encourages critical research and investigation into contemporary issues informing design and time-based media. Students are encouraged to make lasting connections between traditional and emerging practices, collaborative modes of expression, and alternative problem-solving methods. Studio work spans many areas including interaction design, design strategy, social change, video, film, performance, gaming, storytelling, identity and branding, sound art, information design, and motion. Advanced research into theories of systems, sequencing and space are undertaken in upper division courses.
The Transmedia Design faculty provide expertise across design and time-based media, serving as a critical backdrop for student investigations. This plays out within a collaborative studio environment exploring and experimenting with issues of the personal, political, cultural and technological.
