In the Vermont State University Media Arts Concentration, you’ll explore the expanding world of cutting-edge artistic expression through the use of traditional or expanded forms of visual expression. Studies will study the use of emerging technologies, interactive media, immersive arts, creative inquiry, and artistic collaboration. Courses include image processing, sound design, non-narrative animation, video and motion graphics, and new media. 

The program starts with introductory courses designed to increase your familiarity with worldwide artistic and theoretical concepts associated with both traditional and leading-edge media. As you advance through the program, you will expand your artistic vision by combining film, sound design, new media, animation, creative coding, and related artistic formats into new and innovative works of art.
