List of Media Arts/New Media/Animation Programs

Recommended Posts

This is an incomplete list of media arts/animation/interactive design MFA programs I came across during my search of programs to apply to in 2016. I thought this list may be helpful. The programs with * next to the names are funded, most programs listed have some sort of funding and some may be fully funded also but due to time constraints  I stopped researching when it became clear program wasn't a good fit for my interests. So there is not complete funding info for all of them. 

 

Hopefully this helps someone, good luck and feel free to post any programs I missed.

Thanks, I also spaced adding my short list since I was still researching when I posted. UW also has a Human Centered Design and Engineering MS program which I hear is pretty good.

There's also Parsons' MFA in Design & Technology. That's a really good program in my opinion. I took an elective in that program at The New School. The one negative is that it's all over the place as far as course offerings so it may be difficult to find enough courses to support your focus area. I'm applying to practice-based PhD programs in this field, but I'm considering staying local and getting an MFA instead. Good luck in your pursuit!

DrF8: Thanks for bring up Parsons. The program looks like it may be a really good fit for my interests though I haven't really finalized where I am applying yet. Good luck to you also. :)

 

neetasharma750: No problem, I just figured if I could save someone else hours of monotonous research why not right.
