New Media graduate students receive studios and access to state of the art facilities which include: (3) G5 fully equipped mac labs, a/v editing stations, vinyl cutter and large format printers, 3d scanning and rapid prototyping equipment/facilities, wood/metal shop, the physical computing lab and more.

Most graduate students in the School of Art can expect support in the form of scholarships (http://www.sova.psu.edu/gradstudio.html), or teaching or research assistantships. There are also scholarships offered through the University (http://www.gradsch.psu.edu/fellowships)
