The College of Visual and Performing Arts Department of Transmedia offers MFA programs in Computer Arts, Film, Photography and Video. Students may choose to concentrate in one area or work among a variety of programs, tailoring their studies to specific research concerns.

Students not only receive advanced technical training on state of-the-art equipment, but more importantly, our teaching philosophy instills the necessary critical and conceptual tools to create ambitious, intelligent work in and beyond graduate training. This multivalent approach to graduate study cultivates a critical understanding of the complex ways media is braided with culture, science, politics, philosophy, and popular entertainment. With small class sizes, an award-winning and diverse faculty and a rigorous approach to creativity, students have the ideal environment to develop personal and profound projects.

Syracuse University College of Visual And Performing Arts has committed substantial financial assistance to all Transmedia MFA students. Each MFA candidate will receive at least 13,000 USD in scholarships per year of study, ensuring generous award packages for all admitted students. In addition, many of our students receive additional teaching assistantships and fellowships.

Because of our extensive global contacts, Transmedia students have tremendous opportunities beyond Syracuse. Our off-campus study programs include Berlin, Los Angeles, Prague, Bologna, and New York City. Recent MFA student have received numerous exhibitions, awards, residencies and academic appointments, including Skowhegan School For Painting And Sculpture, screenings at the Cannes film festival and a MacArthur “genius” grant.
