The MFA in Performance and Interactive Media Arts from The City University of New York is a cooperative effort of the Brooklyn College Departments of Art, Computer and Information Science, Film, Television, Radio & Emerging Media, and Theater, and the Conservatory of Music. The faculty is drawn from its contributing departments.
What you'll learn
Students learn to use technology as a means of extending their personal artistic practice and facilitating cross-disciplinary artistic collaborations. Students with diverse academic, artistic, professional, and cultural backgrounds enter the program and work in collaborative groups throughout the course of study, with close mentoring by faculty members.
Most students come to the program with an established career or career goal in an arts field, and generally continue in that field after completing the PIMA degree, utilizing the degree for advancement, skills development, or as an entrée into academia. In the second year a major collaborative thesis production is created and presented in a professional venue.
