The Department of Kinetic Imaging is committed to the artistic exploration of video, animation and sound. The M.F.A. program emphasizes the extension of these practices into the arts and their connection to contemporary issues in visual culture.
Graduate students are exposed to a vigorous visiting artist schedule. Through studio reviews, seminars and research, the students are expected to build an awareness of contemporary and historical definitions of art that will influence their creative work. In addition to their own investigations, graduate students participate in and contribute to the undergraduate program.
While the graduate program is generally a two-year, four-semester in-residence program, students are expected to continue studio pursuits either on campus or at an alternative site throughout the calendar year.
