The new four-year BFA in Art, Media, and Technology provides an interdisciplinary course of study through which students explore the dynamic intersections of design, art, media, and technology in a complex world. Launching in fall 2013, this program will be offered at Parsons' new campus in Paris and will reflect the curricula of the School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons in New York. The program enables emerging art and design thinkers and practitioners to develop their creativity in cross-disciplinary contexts and learn to see design as a transformative, future-facing enterprise.
Art, Media, and Technology students gain a broad knowledge of art and design practices that apply in a variety of disciplines while developing deeper understanding and skills related to a specific domain. Students undertake studio projects involving ideation, research, writing, iteration, and prototyping applied to drawing, photographic thinking, visual computing, and other creative media. Through a dynamic exchange of studio and liberal arts courses that bridge perspectives, disciplines, and practices, students in the program explore innovative approaches to emerging, interdisciplinary, and collaborative areas of art, media, and technology.
Building on the expertise of our faculty and our networks around the world, Parsons will launch the BFA in Art, Media, and Technology program at our Paris campus in fall 2013. Students enrolled in the program will have access to the cultural institutions and resources of Paris as well as the opportunity to spend a semester or year abroad at our New York campus. (Studying abroad requires good academic standing and the approval of your academic advisor.)
Graduates of the Art, Media, and Technology program can pursue careers in interactive and social media, film and television, motion graphics, animation, game design, advertising, graphic arts, fine arts, and related fields.
