Based out of Denver, Colorado, the Master's of Fine Arts in Electronic Media Arts Design program at the University of Denver produces self motivated artists with strengths in creative vision, design, concept development, critical thinking and a commitment to communicating visual messages capable of reshaping the world through innovative artistic design.
The eMAD graduate program fuses the practical and theoretical aspects of electronic Media Arts Design, emphasizing the production of electronic and visual language systems that consciously integrate human factors, critical thought, electronic media, and aesthetic concerns. Within this context, the program provides an opportunity for research and further development of creativity, knowledge and skills in electronic media art. It also instigates evaluation within the context of art and design in its concepts and applications.
