We at the School of Creative Media train students to become masters of the digital tools that define our lives so they can meet the technological, social and environmental challenges of our time. Students combine a basic technical education in computer programming and digital media creation with a broad interdisciplinary training in arts, sciences and humanities to create boldly imaginative, innovative, and ground-breaking, works of media art. Our graduates are change agents both in the field of digital media and the world at large.
