Programs

MA in Digital Media

Applications currently being accepted for Fall 2018 for domestic students

The Masters of Art is a two-year research degree where students conduct an independent Major Research Project (MRP) as the milestone component of the program, under the general direction of a supervisory committee consisting of a principal supervisor and second reader. Projects are defined as a body of work similar to a thesis in quality, scope and/or degree of originality. In particular, the MA program requires MRP projects of research-creation, an approach to research that combines creative and academic research practices, and supports the development of knowledge and innovation through artistic expression, scholarly investigation, and experimentation. The creation process is situated within the research activity and produces critically informed work in a variety of media and art forms. The project must be documented with a report that details and contextualizes it, and be presented in public. The form of the presentation could include an exhibition, screening, performance, or other public display of resultant creation.

MSc in Digital Media

Applications currently being accepted for Fall 2018 for domestic students

The Masters of Science is a two-year research degree where students conduct an independent Major Research Project (MRP) as the milestone component of the MSc program, under the general direction of a supervisory committee consisting of a principal supervisor and second reader. Projects are defined as a body of work similar to a thesis in quality, scope and/or degree of originality. In particular, the MSc requires an MRP whose topics will include implementation and evaluation of recently published ideas, design and development of novel software/hardware applications, or optimizations of algorithms, processes and systems cognizant of real world constraints, all within the domain of digital media. The project must be documented with a report that details and contextualizes it, and be presented in public.

PhD in Digital Media

Beginning Fall 2019 with applications January 2019

The PhD is a four year advanced degree where the major research requirement at the heart of the program forms a significant and original body of research or research-creation with the oversight of a supervisory committee, and submission and defense of a dissertation embodying its results. The requirements for the dissertation research are fully aligned with an integrated project that synthesizes theory and methodology from both STEM and creative domains, resulting in a significant contribution to the advancement of knowledge in the field of Digital Media.
