The Interactive Media Arts MA program from New York University begins with a 5-week session at NYU Shanghai where students will establish a curricular foundation and experience China’s interactive media ecosystem firsthand. Infused across the entire experience are a curricular emphasis on context and connectivity along with a spirit of experimentation, collaboration, and community. By traversing a series of locations and environments, both physical and digital, students acquire an active understanding of the current global landscape of computational media and technology.
During the January session, students will reconnect with one another for an immersive 10-day learning experience in Berlin, a hub for emerging media arts, design and culture. The final 5-week session will be spent at NYU’s new “Media, Technology & Arts” building in Brooklyn. Students will benefit from the network, resources, and 40-year history of ITP in New York!
Similar to both ITP and IMA, the Low Res MA in Interactive Media Arts will leverage a project-based curriculum as a vehicle to explore the intersection of emerging media and humanistic values. Aspects of computer science, engineering, and design will be fused with arts and humanities in a workshop-style approach to learning. Instruction will focus on demystifying the inner workings of computational technologies, facilitating production and practice-based research, encouraging critical investigation, and fostering discussion through multi-disciplinary lenses.
