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.

DMA is home to the UCLA Game Lab, an experimental research and development lab that fosters the production of computer games and game-related research; the Art|Sci Center, dedicated to pursuing and promoting the evolving “Third Culture” by facilitating collaborations between (media) arts and (bio/nano) sciences; the CounterForce Lab a research and fieldwork studio executing projects around the impacts of anthropogenic climate change; and the UCLA Arts Conditional Studio, a research group focused on software's impact on art, politics, and everyday life. The department also boasts strong ties to the UCLA Digital Humanities program which aims to interpret the cultural and social impact of new media and information technologies and apply these technologies to answer cultural, social, historical, and philological questions.

Now accepting applications for 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. Through technical and critical seminars, group critiques, and individual tutorials with faculty, each student is challenged to question conventional ideas about art, technology, and new media while developing a critical awareness about their own work.

Located within UCLA’s prestigious School of the Arts and Architecture, students have the opportunity to work closely with the the department’s world-renowned faculty Rebecca Allen, Steve Anderson, Johanna Drucker, Isla Hansen, Erkki Huhtamo, Willem Henri Lucas, Peter Lunenfeld, Lauren McCarthy, Chandler McWilliams, Rebeca Méndez, Christian Moeller, Casey Reas, Ramesh Srinivasan, Jennifer Steinkamp, Eddo Stern, and Victoria Vesna while taking full advantage of the resources UCLA provides as a leading research university.

Artists from diverse backgrounds in visual and performing arts, architecture, science, and engineering are encouraged to apply.

The fall 2019 application deadline for the MFA in Media Arts is January 15, 2019. Application and additional information available at mfa.dma.ucla.edu.
