University of Denver’s two-year MA and three-year MFA offer two different experiences anchored by the same core concepts:
The EDP Master of Arts Degree (MA) is for those who want to level up with technical skills, creative thinking, and critical perspectives. Explore new ways of integrating digital tools into your discipline — be it science, literature, or social engagement. In this unique MA you will learn hands-on digital skills alongside cultural theories. Employment opportunities span prominent ad agencies to developing for nonprofits.
The EDP Master of Fine Arts Degree (MFA) is a terminal degree allowing a deep exploration into using technology as a means of creative expression. Learn to weave broad critical perspectives into your work and inspire ways to change our world for the better. Professional outcomes include tenure-track faculty positions and commissions for socially engaged public art.
EDP is a NASAD-accredited interdisciplinary program at the University of Denver, a 150-year-old not-for-profit liberal arts university dedicated to the public good.
