The IMDA program at UMBC integrates computer art, video, filmmaking, photography, art theory and criticism. A limited number of applicants are accepted each year in this highly competitive program. Students develop both technical and intellectual flexibility, approaching current and emerging technologies with a foundation in critical thinking and are guided in considering technology as a cultural construct capable of being altered, enhanced, created or challenged by artists. The Imaging Research Center, an internationally recognized experimental computer visualization and animation research facility, is integral to the program.
