New Media

The New Media program offers undergraduate level study that leads to a BFA degree. Students and faculty work in sound, video, interactive media, and web-based platforms to create performances, exhibitions, and projects in public space. Through research and teaching, the New Media program serves as Illinois' site for practice-based exploration and criticism of new technological forms of art, design, and communication.

Students work primarily through practice, building experiences that utilize new and old technologies and narratives. Through the construction of projects in various media, they acquire technical skills, practice vocabularies of critique and analysis, and gain familiarity with historical and contemporary precedents.
