The School of Arts, Media and Engineering is now accepting applications to
our MA program in Digital Culture.

MA Digital Culture

The MA in Digital Culture is a program housed in the transdisciplinary
School of Arts, Media and Engineering. It is geared toward practitioners of
design and the arts who have an interest in engaging in scholarly knowledge
creation at the intersection of computational arts and sciences and seek to
enhance their practice through expanded engagement with interactive and
embodied media theory and design. The degree program allows artists and
designers to explore new avenues for real-time media creation that seek to
go beyond current paradigms.

The School of Arts, Media and Engineering (AME) educates the next
generation of learners and empowers them with technofluency–its development,
application, and implications. The School of Arts, Media and Engineering
prepares students to be socially aware, critically thinking global citizens
who strive to bring about positive change in a society that will be
increasingly shaped by revolutions in new technologies.

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.
