Experimental Digital Media
The Master of Arts in Experimental Digital Media (XDM)*, is a new program dedicated to exploring the creative and critical processes provided by the new digital media. XDM emphasizes a lab-based and hands-on approach to digital technology; students in the program learn to use the digital media as a critical tool combining theory and practice in the production of objects-to-think-with. The program’s rich mix of theoretical and practical study prepares graduates for research in digital media, and/or a variety of careers in the media industries. The program is focused on the Critical Media Lab, a centre for the experimental production of digital objects and exhibitions where students, faculty, and local digital artists interact.
