Are you an independent spirit with entrepreneurial ambitions? If you want to explore new ways of working with images, sound, text and interactivity, our Design, Art & Technology program is tailor-made just for you. As a student in the Design, Art & Technology program, you’ll chart your own course by focusing on content, audience and craft – all while adding your own unique flair.

Explore emerging art and design practices like virtual and physical computing, motion graphics, data visualization, electronic music and more, as you hone your creativity and your skills. At the University of the Arts, we offer the only university program that trains designers and artists right next to each other. You can collaborate with students in the Craft & Material Studies program to create wearable interactive works. And you can take innovation and entrepreneurship classes that could lead to grant funding for student projects from UArts’ Corzo Center for the Creative Economy.

With a degree in Design, Art & Technology, you get to define your own success. Maybe that means working in a web development company or advertising agency. Or perhaps you’ll start a career in the 3-D printing industry or in filmmaking. Or maybe your place is in a theater company, dance troupe or art gallery. Or branch out on your own as an entrepreneur – your opportunities are limitless.
