Courses include interactive media, coding for artists, interactive installation, physical computing, and a range of interactive studio courses. Recommended electives include courses in sculpture, history of new media, AR/VR, artificial intelligence, electronic music, and special effects.

Learning Outcomes

In Pratt’s Department of Digital Arts, undergraduates will develop aesthetic finesse, technological skill, conceptual sophistication related to digital media, and thorough comprehension of the potential of art and technology. Graduates demonstrate an expertise in their discipline, a unique voice in their medium and a knowledge of historical works in art and technology. Students then learn to create professional documentation and presentation skills to launch their careers in the Digital Arts.
