The MFA in Electronic Integrated Arts is designed to benefit an emerging population of students whose work questions the relationship between accepted languages of interrelated media (painting, printmaking, photography, video, and the electronic arts) and the languages of new technology within a contemporary fine arts context.
This program of interdisciplinary study is committed to expanding the shared boundaries between traditional and new art media. Students who complete this MFA program will be prepared to take their place in the world as practicing artists, teachers, and leaders who are discovering new territories and making significant contributions in the field of electronic integrated arts.
The Electronic Integrated Arts MFA is a 60-credit, two year full-time program. This program considers art-making in a broad, cross-disciplinary structure, and will successfully integrate emerging electronic technologies with an already strong curriculum in painting, printmaking, photography, and video. Each accepted student will receive a full tuition waiver and a graduate teaching assistantship/fellowship. The Electronic Arts studio facilities are located in the John Wood Studios of Harder Hall.
They are comprised of painting and drawing studios, and the electronic arts and imaging labs. These facilities currently exceed 25,000 square feet, and were completely renovated in 1995, meeting or exceeding State health and safety standards. Students have individual studio spaces, and use of all other 2-D area labs, studios, and equipment. The facilities of this division are accessible to both graduate and undergraduate students, encouraging and active exchange of ideas and the opportunity to view the work of students at all levels.
