The Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies at Duke University, in connection with the Information Science + Studies Program and the Wired! Lab for Digital Art History & Visual Culture, offers an 18-month Master of Arts in Digital Art History/Computational Media.
The Computational Media track is designed for graduate students focused on the study, creation, and use of digital media and computation in the arts and humanities. Computational Media explores research and presentation strategies enabled by the information sciences, new approaches to computational processes, and new forms of interpreting quantitative and qualitative data. The goals of the program are for students to understand the critical affordances and potential of digital media, to develop competencies in data-driven and computational approaches to knowledge production, and to develop a hybrid theory-practice MA thesis that demonstrates their expertise in action around a particular subject.
