The curriculum gives specific attention to crafting interactions across an array of media and forms, including person to person, person to object and object to object encounters. Interaction and code are at the core of P2P/Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, VR/AR, and 5G, and while all IA majors are not required to work with these specific technologies their studies will provide them a conceptual and technical foundation to engage creatively with these transformative innovations.
Interactive Arts students begin their studies with core courses introduce essential skills and that serve as pre-requisites for all upper level classes - freeing students to select their own path through the majority of our offerings. Each core class is supplemented with specialized coursework in games, sound art, and robotic arts.
Students create portfolio projects in all of the department's classes, and in addition to developing media specific skills, learn how to document, write about, present, and exhibit their works. Students are free to select from a wide range of electives to complement their studies and achieve their creative goals.
