Rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepare students to become leaders of commentary and change. The School of Art, Media, and Technology (AMT) offers unparalleled training in the art and design disciplines, expanding these fields beyond their traditional boundaries through interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange.
AMT embodies the dynamic dialogue between art and design. Our school places artists and designers within immediate proximity to show that difference does not mean division. And while our programs still allow students to pursue significant time in their studios, we actively encourage partnerships between artists and designers that may yield brand new subjects and methods of inquiry. What unites AMT graduates, regardless of their program of choice? They learn to think independently and critically, and they discover how they may engage with society via their unique forms of creativity. At AMT, we also understand that new media platforms and technological capabilities are transforming art and design as we know it; breaking down the few remaining disciplinary boundaries, and offering artists new opportunities for commentary, reflection, and interaction in their work. We embrace, rather than resist, radical transformation, in order to best cultivate students’ awareness of their interests and abilities.
