The Intermedia + Digital Arts MFA (IMDA) program at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) is now accepting applications. Applications received by February 1, 2018 will receive full consideration toward financial packages.

We offer students:

  • Newly renovated Baltimore studios

  • Cutting edge curriculum
  • Engaged faculty

IMDA just moved to a new studio facility at the historic Lion Brothers Building in the Hollins Market neighborhood of West Baltimore. The studios are designed specifically for artists, where graduate students can build and display ongoing projects. This space also serves as a platform where students take classes and discuss their work during faculty reviews, critique, and one-on-one studio visits with guest artists and critics through IMDA’s acclaimed Visiting Artists Lecture Series.

IMDA’s facilities support endeavors that include digital fabrication and 3D maker output, distributed networks, games, performances, sculptural objects, prints, photographs, 4k video production, interactive installations, physical computing, public displays, and other socially engaged works.

Financial packages include Research Assistantships in teaching and creative work and are available on a competitive basis. A variety of internal research and merit-based grants to support student work are also available.
