About

The IMA Program educates multi-disciplinary, socially engaged media makers in a diverse range of skills across the media landscape. Working with faculty from film, video, emerging media, and journalism backgrounds, students learn to conceptualize, create and distribute innovative, politically and socially engaged expression using contemporary media technologies.

The IMA Program offers a 48-credit course of study, combining analytical seminars, interdisciplinary research, and creative workshops in writing, visual communication, and media production, and culminating in an advanced thesis project and paper. IMA students can also engage in collaborative production labs, intensive tech workshops, a teaching mentorship program, and outside creative residencies. The IMA Program’s robust non-credit offerings include the IMA film screening series, visiting artist lectures as well as master classes and student critiques with prominent artists and media makers. Student work in the program has included single channel documentaries, interactive websites, handmade electro-mechanical devices, public exhibitions, interactive installations, transmedia narratives, live performances, and rich media for the expanding spectrum of screen based platforms. The IMA program has an ongoing commitment to the role of sound in nonfiction media, to learn more about sound studies in the IMA program click here. Building on a foundation of research and analysis, IMA students explore and create new ways to advance information and ideas, balancing critical thinking with aesthetics, contemporary issues with an historical perspective, theory with practice, and traditional methods with new technologies.
