Technology, Arts and Media (TAM) Program


The ever-expanding landscape of the networked age requires new and adaptable skill-sets.

The Technology, Arts and Media Program, based within the ATLAS Institute, offers three undergraduate programs: a Bachelor of Science in Technology, Arts and Media (BS TAM) in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, a Minor in Technology, Arts and Media (MTAM) and a Certificate in Digital Media (CDM). The BS and Minor are for students who wish to pursue research and careers in digital media, whereas the Certificate is for students interested in the fundamentals of digital media production.

The philosophy of the TAM Program curriculum is to integrate creative production, critical thinking, and technical skills into each course.  TAM teaches a diverse and robust skill-set, not confined to specific disciplines such as “Graphic Design” or “Digital Art.” We challenge students to become aware of the various disciplinary perspectives and to contextualize their work accordingly.
