The primary focus of undergraduate education in Digital Arts and Experimental Media is to create opportunities for artists to discover and document new knowledge and expertise at the most advanced levels higher education can offer to emerging artists. Unlike the many other BFA degrees, which is the initial professional studio art degree, this BFA is primarily a pre-graduate, research-oriented degree. It signifies that an individual is professionally qualified to proceed further toward graduate studies in the digital arts and sciences and investigate fundamental problems in the nature and practice of Digital Arts and Experimental Media. They are prepared to pursue original creative and technical research in the field and contribute to the development of knowledge and its consequences in society and culture.
