The School of Arts, Media and Engineering is now accepting applications to
our PhD program in Media Arts and Sciences

PhD Media Arts and Sciences

Media Arts and Sciences is a PhD program housed in the transdisciplinary
School of Arts, Media and Engineering. Our doctoral students are provided
unique opportunities to engage in knowledge creation at the intersection of
computational arts and sciences using the most advanced practice-based and
theoretical methods. At the core of this program is a commitment to
designing curriculum tailored to each student-researcher in conjunction
with our diverse faculty, labs, and centers. This allows us to facilitate
the development of innovative, experiential media systems that can respond
to the world’s most pressing challenges.

The School of Arts, Media and Engineering is devoted to producing research
at the highest scholarly, artistic, and technological levels. The
opportunity for active participation in transdisciplinary research teams
allows Media Arts and Sciences doctoral students to gain valuable
experience as both agents of their own research and education, while
fostering opportunities for collaborative and embedded research.

Students admitted into the Media Arts and Sciences PhD program can pursue
research at the intersection of any of these and other fields:


   Acoustic Ecology

   AI and Machine Learning

   Auditory Culture

Teaching and research assistantship positions are available as funding
allows. The school currently funds around 10 teaching assistants. In
addition, nearly 20 research assistantships are currently funded from
individual labs. Please contact individual faculty to inquire about funded
positions in their labs. TA positions are usually considered by school
after successful admission as funding is available.

The School of Arts, Media and Engineering

The School of Arts, Media and Engineering (AME) is built on the idea that
the biggest and most important challenges require transdisciplinary
approaches. AME and the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts embody
an institutional philosophy to “fuse intellectual disciplines”. Our
graduate programs offer students unique opportunities to work with faculty
who have diverse academic specializations with deep knowledge and skills in
complementary areas.

AME hosts state-of-the art facilities, including multiple motion analysis
labs, black box performance spaces with infrastructure for sensing, audio
and visual playback, a sound research lab, a technology development lab, a
visual media lab, a BSL-1 certified design studio, and a large
fabrication/maker space for students to ignite their creativity in their
projects. We use cutting edge equipment for hardware and software
development, and provide access for students to check out items as they are

Arizona State University is a world leading Research-1 University. The
School of Arts, Media and Engineering is located on the Tempe campus in
Arizona, within the larger Phoenix metropolitan area. Tempe is a growing
Sonoran desert city and is rapidly attracting and originating a wide range
of technologically focused innovation in the public and private sectors.
