University of California, San Diego
Visual Arts (Media) B.A.

With a visual arts foundation, the program is designed for students who want to become creative videomakers, filmmakers, photographers and computer artists, encouraging the hybridity of media. The curriculum combines hands-on experience of making artwith practical and theoretical criticism, provides historical, social and aesthetic backgrounds for the understanding of modern media, and emphasizes creativity, versatility and intelligence over technical specializations. It should allow students to go on to more specialized graduate programs in the media arts, to seek careers in film, television, computing or photography, or to develop as independent artists.
