The New Media Design discipline deals with the design of technology, where students conceptualize, create and critique current, emerging and speculative technologies. Work that emerges from the discipline aims to be embedded in context and to address the theoretical, historical and philosophical concerns of its time. The three primary learning objectives of the discipline include a critical examination of the relationship between technology and culture, competency in judging the appropriate application of technology and development of insights leading to the invention of new technology.
Contemporary study and practice of new media design are at the intersection of several fields. In this sense, the discipline enables students to navigate various disciplines to create associations across fields, including art, science, technology, design and philosophy. As a result, graduates of the discipline are able to function in situations where ambiguity persists and to inform their own practice through continued research.Read More Read Less
