Register now! Event includes a tour of ACT facilities and other arts-related venues, opportunities to meet faculty and students, and a discussion of portfolio guidelines and the application process. Immediately following the event, ACT will host a lecture by Carla Fernández, a visiting lecturer.

The Master of Science in Art, Culture, and Technology at MIT is a rigorous two-year program for artist-thinkers advancing their critical and production practices. Research, pedagogy, and MIT’s culture of scientific inquiry and technological advancement inform current explorations: cinema and its migrations; art in the public sphere; performance, video, photography and related media; and spatial and sonic experimentation.

ACT graduate students are challenged to question the aesthetic, historical, cultural, social, and ethical implications of their work. Critical thinking, knowledge mining, and creative engagement, along with explorations of changing public and private spheres, are of particular relevance.

In addition to engaging in transdisciplinary projects with researchers in departments, labs, and centers at MIT, ACT faculty work with scholars and institutions in the US and around the globe including Brazil, Great Britain, Finland, Norway, Germany, Bosnia, China, and Japan, bringing external reviewers, artists, speakers, and students to visit and collaborate with ACT students and faculty. The Office of the Arts at MIT extends the opportunities available to students for collaboration and exchange with internationally recognized artists and scholars.
