New Media Art

The New Media Art program at UNT emphasizes intellectual, creative and technical growth. Coursework exposes students to a wide variety of New Media Art practices ranging from time-based to interactive and kinetic art. Students are empowered though the development of self-discipline, cultural awareness and personal voice.

As a New Media Art student, you will take courses in time-based media, video art, experimental animation, experimental 3-D art, interactive art and kinetic art. You will also take a variety of other studio art and art history courses offered at UNT. All New Media Art classes emphasize artistic voice over technical skill. See our FAQ for more information.

The New Media Art program is actively involved with UNT’s iARTA (Initiative for Advanced Research in Technology and the Arts) research cluster, which provides students unique opportunities to collaborate and take classes with students and faculty from a variety of other colleges and departments such as Engineering, the College of Music and the Department of Radio, Film and Television.

A B.F.A. with a concentration in New Media Art prepares students for independent practices as fine artists while also preparing them for acceptance to Masters of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) programs.  A B.F.A. with a New Media Art concentration makes an excellent candidate for any job requiring technology skills and a fine arts background.
