The MFA in Media Arts enables students from various backgrounds to create a refined, sophisticated and individualized artistic practice in a variety of media. Focus areas include experimental film and video, documentary, performance, game design, social-computational media, digital poetics, mobile and locative media.

The Department of Media Study is renowned for its pioneering contributions to experimental film, video and sound art practice and theory. Today, Media Study adds to these existing strengths conceptual and computational media with a diversity very few art departments can match.

Students enrolled in Media Study’s graduate programs work together with artists and theorists whose work and research deliver formative contributions to current practices and discourses in the media arts. Media Study also maintains vibrant exchanges with many other departments across the University at Buffalo, the flagship institution of the State University of New York, including Anthropology, Architecture, Visual Studies, Geography, Geology, Comparative Literature, Music and Theatre & Dance. International ties with world-class institutions such as the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar offer students the chance of adding study abroad to their portfolio of activities. We offer computing resources and expertise not typically found in arts programs, enabling students to engage computational media on a deeper level. All students receive access to studio space and state of the art equipment commensurate with experimental media practices.

Buffalo and Western New York offer a vibrant art scene with a high density of museums and galleries, including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, CEPA Gallery, Big Orbit, Soundlab, Hallwalls, and Squeeky Wheel.  If you are an independent, creative, critical and self-motivated artist with a vision, Media Study at the University of Buffalo is the right place for you.
