Manipulate and explore hardware, software, and code as tools for creation and expression.
Started in 2014 to support students working in digital mediums, the Electronic Art concentration is an interdisciplinary program that explores technology within a fine art context. As an Electronic Art student, you will gain technical skills that are complemented by research on contemporary art, current technology, and the role of new media art. You will examine technology, its impact on society and culture, and think critically about the digital realm. Like all of our concentrations, your coursework will be supported by our Foundations Program, giving you a visual language, a critical eye, and the technical skills to find your voice and participate in the advancing world of electronic art.
