The Master of Arts inDigital Arts and Sciences (Fine Arts) degree at University of Florida seeks to allow students from diverse academic backgrounds the opportunity to develop fluency in the technologies, design practices and collaborative interdisciplinary teamwork increasingly required by the media, communications and entertainment industries.
Opportunities range from traditional cinema to interactive games; from broadcast media to online international networks to emergent industries.
Although this is a thesis degree, students usually produce a creative project in lieu of thesis. Students should see the graduate coordinator for the requirements for the creative project, which are also provided in the DAS Student Handbook.
Students seeking admission are expected to have an undergraduate background including:
- A degree in one of the fine arts or liberal arts
- A body of work that demonstrates accomplishment in the intended area
- A body of work that can clearly be enhanced with skills to be acquired in the DAS program.
Deficiencies may be corrected before beginning graduate study. In addition to appropriate academic credentials and prior scholastic achievement, admission into the program requires a well-constructed Statement of Purpose and media-related support material (i.e. samples of design, programming, video, web, writing, etc.) that demonstrates both prior interest and/or achievement in New Media/Digital Arts & Sciences.
