The University of Oklahoma Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts now offers an online Master of Arts in Art and Technology. Developed by the School of Visual Arts, this 33-credit hour program can be completed in as few as 18 months. Rooted in both a theory of art and art history, the program’s comprehensive curriculum bridges the world of art, design, and technology by teaching students how to utilize emerging technologies to push the boundaries of digital creation in the 21st century. Graduates of this program will have the ability to work as graphic designers, animators, game developers, programmers, and more.

 

Keep Up with a Rapidly Changing Industry. Technology is impacting every aspect of modern life – including art and design. While artists and designers need education and guidance in coding, digital media and systems design, computer programmers, developers and other IT professionals need a grounding in visual art and culture to leverage their tech skills for creative expression.

Learn from Experts in the Field. Study with experts and practicing artists that have exhibited both nationally and internationally, and can help build your network.

Right Degree from Right School. Earn an advanced degree from a college that has been impacting the nexus between art, technology and culture since 1954.

Become a Competitive Candidate. The art, design, and computer technology industries all increasingly demand job applicants have a master’s degree, yet few in the field currently have an advanced degree. Stand out from the crowd and expand your job opportunities as a graduate of the online M.A. in Art and Technology.

Flexible, Online Format. Take classes online from anywhere in the world – and while continuing to work full-time.
