Fully-funded Greenhouse Studios Graduate Studentships
Greenhouse Studios, in partnership with the University of Connecticut School of Fine Arts, is pleased to announce two funded M.F.A. studentships in either Digital Media & Design or Studio Art. The studentships will provide full tuition, health benefits, and a half-time graduate research assistantship with Greenhouse Studios | Scholarly Communications Design at UConn. Greenhouse Studios Graduate Assistants provide artistic, design, creative expression, and technical implementation assistance to Greenhouse Studios projects. Working in a dynamic, team environment alongside faculty, library, editor, and student colleagues, graduate assistants contribute to the production of collaborative multimedia research objects. Other responsibilities include supporting day-to-day operations of the Greenhouse Studios, its directors, and its collaborative workspace. This is an exciting opportunity for an aspiring artist or scholar to work in close collaboration with experts from a range of fields and to experiment with new modes of expression and communication.
The Digital Media & Design department offers two graduate degree programs: Master of Arts (M.A.) and a Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.).
Master of Arts
The Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Digital Media & Design is intended to provide educational and career-training opportunities for students interested in a specific area of practice within the Digital Media space. The program is structured to develop a focused understanding of digital media aesthetics, practice, procedure, technology, design, implementation and/or research techniques within a targeted commercial or creative area including: Digital Arts, Business, Digital Humanities/Social Sciences, STEM, and Entertainment.
The program of study for the M.A. requires one year of full-time resident graduate study. A minimum of 30 graduate level credits will be required to graduate, as well as a final exam/project that demonstrates personal strengths and vision within the candidate’s selected area of study.
Master of Fine Arts
The Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) is a terminal degree in Digital Media & Design intended to provide educational and career-training within an experiential learning environment in which students engage in collaborative projects with external corporate and creative companies to develop a specific area of practice within the Digital Media space. The program is structured to develop an in-depth understanding of digital media aesthetics, technology, practice, procedure, design, implementation and/or research techniques employed in the areas of Digital Art, Business, Digital Humanities/Social Sciences, STEM, and Entertainment.
The Master of Fine Arts in Digital Media & Design will require a two-year commitment of full-time resident graduate study.
