MFA Curriculum

Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Digital Arts

Goucher's transdisplinary MFA in Digital Arts treats music, animation, design, computer programming, web development, entrepreneurship, new media studies, and other related fields as one larger convergent discipline. The MFA program offers students the opportunity to continue developing their artistic voice while gaining the technological skills that are most relevant to today's society. In addition to coursework in visual media, sound, and video, students take courses in management and creative web programming. This makes students stand out from their peers and uniquely positions them for the challenges of tomorrow. Students develop a rich portfolio of multimedia works that demonstrate a wide variety of skills and help them unlock their creative potential.
