Bachelor of Arts in ATEC
Emerging Media Arts
Undergraduates begin their coursework at ATEC based in the foundations of computer animation, game studies, UX/UI design, motion graphics, digital fabrication, and media histories. Beginning their third year of study, students have the option to select a concentration in Animation and Games, Critical Media Studies, or Emerging Media Arts.
Students who wish to specialize in Emerging Media Arts (EMA) within the Arts, Technology, and Emerging Communication major may apply to be admitted into the EMA concentration after consultation with their Academic Advisor. Emerging Media Arts offers students coursework in digital arts areas such as digital fabrication, projection mapping, new media art and performance, sound, time-based media, and video. EMA students have the opportunity to engage in studio art practices with emerging media and technology.
The EMA concentration centers on building a portfolio of studio-based artwork as part of the ongoing social role that art plays in reimagining and projecting the human condition. By selecting courses from a variety of School elective headings, students are able to synthesize other areas of interest into their focus on Emerging Media Arts.
