[Nettime-bold] Announcing the MFA in Integrated Media Arts

February 14, 2002
From:    Hunter College President Jennifer J. Raab

I am very pleased to announce that our new Master of Fine Arts  Program
in Integrated Media Arts: Advanced Studies in Nonfiction Media Making
was approved by the CUNY Board of Trustees on January 28, 2002.  We are
optimistic about receiving approval from the New York State Education
Department (SED) shortly.

A truly innovative program, the MFA in Integrated Media Arts is designed
to integrate advanced interactive media technologies with the expanding
areas of nonfiction media, including news journalism, documentary,
biography, commentary and criticism, to prepare students for positions
of creative leadership in a wide range of contemporary media
organizations.   At the core of the program are production workshop
courses in three creative clusters: WORDS (emphasizing journalism,
script and treatment writing, and other forms of nonfiction media
writing); VISIONS(emphasizing visual communication of stories, ideas and
information); and CHANNELS (emphasizing designs for distributing and
exhibiting media work, publicizing ideas and using media to enhance the
quality of community interaction).  Students will also participate in
internships, interdisciplinary research and seminars focused on the
interrelatedness of media and society.

We anticipate that the new MFA in Integrated Media Arts will quickly
become a premier program at Hunter, and its graduates will be highly
sought after by the media industry in New York City and elsewhere.

Applications are being accepted for Fall 2002 admission to the program.
