The MFA program in Digital Media Art at CADRE is a 3 year program of study including seminars, art history, studio courses, critique and independent study. Student progress is monitored through a series of open faculty reviews and exhibition of art works. Candidates for the MFA in Digital Media Art must demonstrate strong artistic accomplishment. Applicants must provide a statement of intent indicating conceptual orientation and proposed direction of study. Academic programs emphasize artistic experimentation within a context of historical, cultural, and theoretical study.
DMA operates two labs including the CADRE Institute’s Physical Computing Lab and the DMA Game Design Lab providing research-based pedagogy in microcircuits, fabrication and prototyping, computer games and interactive programming. We offer fabrication facilities in our comprehensive wood and metal shops including laser cutters, CNC routers, and thermoforming, in addition to metal and large-scale sculpture fabrication through the department’s Spatial Art Program Area.
