The Intermedia + Digital Arts [IMDA] M.F.A. program welcomes interdisciplinary artists seeking to expand or reinvent their practice. IMDA is committed to art that poses unique conceptual and social challenges while we provide renovated studios; teaching opportunities; emerging methods; theory; engaged faculty; and research centers. Graduate students take advantage of Baltimore’s vibrant art scene and mount their thesis exhibitions in the prestigious Center for Art, Design, and Visual Culture [CADVC]. As a state research university, graduate students pursue a range of creative options from identity politics to sound sculpture, medical and bio-art, human-centered computing, interactive art, and video installation, data-veillance, social practice, and technology in both intellectual and formal terms. Our graduates are committed to a lifetime of creative productivity, with the skills, focus, and professional development that will propel their adventurous artistic practices to a new level. IMDA alumni present their work at distinguished museums, galleries, and festivals around the world and have garnered support from significant granting sources. Many have become academic leaders at some of the most rigorous art academies and universities in the U.S. and abroad. Financial assistance, including full Research Assistantships in teaching and at research centers, are available on a competitive basis.

Prominent visiting artists present their work regularly and give one-on-one feedback to graduate students. Past lecturers include Karen Finley, Janine Antoni, @rtMark, The Yes Men, Paul DeMarinis, Hasan Elahi, eteam, Nina Katchaourian, Paul Rucker, Mark Tribe, Michael Rakowitz, Karen Yasinsky, Fred Wilson, Guillermo Gómez Peña, Barbara Hammer, Lalo Alcaraz, David Rokeby, Zoe Beloff, Tony Dove, Martha Wilson, Brandon Morse, Cara Ober, David Hess, Alison Knowles, Larry Miller, Johanna Drucker, Tony Dove, Matmos, Elissa Blount Moorehead, Paul Chan, Ted Victoria and Krzysztof Wodiczko.
