UCSC Digital Arts and New Media MFA Program
Call for Fall 2009 Applications

The Digital Arts and New Media MFA program at the University of California, Santa Cruz is now accepting applications for Fall 2009. Artists are encouraged to apply by February 15, 2009.

The two-year MFA program brings together faculty and students from across the academic spectrum to pursue interdisciplinary artistic and scholarly research. The diverse curriculum includes collaborative research project groups, where small clusters of students work with professors on artistic, technical and theoretical research in one of four focused areas: Participatory Culture, Performative Technologies, Mechatronics and Playable Media. These collaborations result in publications and exhibitions.

Students also take core and elective courses in the theory and practice of digital media arts that support the development of individual thesis projects that are premiered in the program’s annual MFA Exhibition. The MFA is the terminal degree in the field of Digital Media Arts, qualifying graduates for a variety of career paths including university-level teaching and research.
