From its home in the new, state-of-the-art Digital Arts Research Center (DARC), the DANM MFA Program brings together the arts, engineering, the humanities, and the sciences to produce artistic and scholarly research in the context of a broad inquiry into digital arts and cultures.

A critical component of the DANM MFA Program is collaborative, faculty-led research. Students’ core courses explore theory and practice, complemented by a range of electives and opportunities for exhibition. Two years of intensive study culminates in the development of individual thesis papers and projects, which premiere in an annual MFA exhibition. The MFA is a terminal degree in the arts and qualifies graduates for a variety of career paths including university-level teaching and research.
