    The Transmedia Design program, a merger of the Graphic Design and 4D graduate programs within the School of Art, is seeking interested applicants for its inaugural year. The three-year MFA encourages critical research and investigation into contemporary issues informing Design and Time-Based media. Students are encouraged to make lasting connections between traditional and emerging practices, collaborative modes of expression, and alternative problem-solving methods. Studio work spans many areas including interaction design, design strategy, social change, video, film, performance, gaming, storytelling, identity and branding, sound art, information design and motion. Advanced research into theories of systems, sequencing and space are undertaken in upper division courses.

    The first two years of study includes coursework within Transmedia Design and electives in the School of Art and across the University as well. In the third year of study, students are responsible for developing, executing and defending a project of their own design. Along with other School of Art MFA candidates, these projects culminate in an exhibit and/or presentation at either the School of Art's Ewing Gallery or UT Downtown Gallery.

    The Transmedia Design faculty provide expertise across design and time-based media, serving as a critical backdrop for student investigations. This plays out within a collaborative studio environment exploring and experimenting with issues of the personal, political, cultural and technological. Faculty teaching in the program include:
