Department of Art
Integrated Media is a pool of thematic-based electives supported by the Department of Art to provide a broad base of technical and conceptual skills that can be applied to a wide range of creative activities, not specific to one particular discipline. The goal is to provide fluid opportunities for students to explore the integration of technology with the unique elements of other disciplines. Students will utilize practices such as video, web-based work, electronics, time-based media, installation, and community-based design.
Integrated Media coursework is designed to prepare students to:
• Bridge disciplines in the field of art, art history, and design, and foster cross-fertilization and collaboration among disciplines.
• Create work that exists outside the boundaries of traditional modes of art and design making.
• Work in an environment that includes a diverse faculty that offers focused research within a cross-disciplinary academic community.
• Engage in innovative, experimental, and theoretical coursework that encourages individual development within an interdisciplinary context.
