The Department of Design Media Arts
The Department of Design Media Arts (DMA) at UCLA cultivates a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to artistic practice that focuses experimentation and innovative thinking. We synthesize practice, history, and theory and hybridize technologies, discourses, and audiences. Artists in the program create work for books, galleries, game consoles, installations, films, magazines, performances, public spaces, televisions, and websites. We strive to create socially and culturally relevant objects, experiences, and spaces.

MFA in Media Arts
The MFA Program in Media Arts offers a rigorous environment for the sustained exploration of contemporary arts practice in the context of media and technology. Students are challenged to question conventional ideas about art, technology, and new media while developing a critical awareness of their work. Graduate students come from diverse backgrounds including the visual and performing arts, architecture, science, and engineering.

The department’s world-renowned faculty includes Rebecca Allen, Johanna Drucker, Erkki Huhtamo, Robert Israel, Willem Henri Lucas, Peter Lunenfeld, Rebeca Mendez, Christian Moeller, Casey Reas, Ramesh Srinivasan, Jennifer Steinkamp, Eddo Stern, and Victoria Vesna.
