Student Gallery

Our students use interdisciplinary design to impact social issues in a global context and apply new ideas from science, technology and culture.

Our interdisciplinary MFA is grounded in media—graphic, visual, interactive, spatial, experiential—and technology. An array of student perspectives emerge in the studio, classes and reviews that recast the role of technology in society in surprising new ways.
