University Majors

University of California, San Diego
Visual Arts /Interdisciplinary Computing and the Arts B.A.

May be admitted to pre-major status in visual arts until prerequisites are satisfied. The Interdisciplinary Computing and the Arts major in the Music and Visual Arts Departments draws upon, and aims to bring together, ideas and paradigms from computer science, art and cultural theory. It takes for granted that the computer has become a metamedium and that artists working with computers are expected to combine different media forms in their works. All of this makes the program unique among currently existing computer art or design programs which, on the one hand, usually focus on the use of computers for a particular media (for instance, specializing in computer animation, or computer music, or computer design for print) and, on the other hand, do not enter into a serious dialogue with current research in computer science, only teaching the students "off-the-shelf" software.
