The Intermedia and Digital Art (IMDA) graduate program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) facilitates students’ engagement with emerging artistic practices to address conceptual and social challenges. With studios in Baltimore’s progressive art community, the IMDA graduate program provides opportunities to work closely with engaged faculty in the Visual Arts and in other Departments at UMBC, with access to research centers, and opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration, teaching, career development, and exhibitions.

IMDA alumni have gallery representation, run their own artists’ spaces, work in the production industry, and have teaching positions at some of the most respected art academies and universities in the field.
