The Studio Art and the Computer track of the MFA in Emerging Media, provides students an opportunity to inform and enhance their artistic practice using 21st Century electronic media. This emphasis on electronic media is pliable enough to encompass the many ways in which technology intersects with contemporary art and design.
Students in the program are invited to combine their backgrounds in traditional art or computer-related disciplines within a conceptually driven, interdisciplinary environment. Courses provide exposure to time-based media, performance art, video art, sound works, kinetic sculpture, computer-based art, and art using the Internet in order to understand how these forms are driving 21st century artistic practice and informing our understanding of contemporary cultural identities.
The Studio Art and the Computer MFA track is composed of a minimum of 66 credit hours, to be acquired in three years (six full-time semesters excluding summers). Degree credit is obtained in theory courses, studio art courses, electives, and supervised research. All courses must be approved by the Graduate Program Director. The thesis consists of a body of artistic work accompanied by electronic (Internet) documentation and a culminating exhibition.For more information please visit the UCF Graduate Catalog.
