new media

New Media at UAB takes an integrated approach to contemporary media practices by synthesizing fine arts with electronic and digital technologies. Through technical innovation and interdisciplinary engagement, New Media provides context for the relationship of media practices and other artistic disciplines.

Using the platform of electronic and digital technologies students are encouraged to create projects grounded in traditional and experimental methods within the visual arts. The area offers students courses in video, animation, interactive design, as well as emerging technologies, such as laser etching and 3D printing.

New Media courses count toward fulfillment of the Film Minor in the Interdisciplinary Film Minor Program.
