As an undergraduate student, you are accepted directly into your major and are immediately placed in classes that provide you with the conceptual, creative, and technical tools to begin your journey. If you've already been producing media in high-school, we won't put you on hold. Check out these profiles of talented Parkies who thrived professionally while still being full-time students. If you haven't had the opportunity to explore media yet, that's ok, too. In either case, it's important to jump right into experiences that will help you decide which of the hundreds of areas of specialty best fit your talents and goals.
Our graduate students continue pursuing their jobs or entrepreneurial/artistic practice while being fully enrolled in either our low residency M.F.A. in Image-Text or our online M.S. in Communications Innovation. Each program begins with an intensive introduction in Ithaca to your intentionally small cohort and your faculty, and you continue to collaborate closely over the course of the degrees.
