NYU is launching an interdisciplinary undergraduate Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Interactive Media Arts (IMA). The IMA program starts from the proposition that computation — the ability to code, learn new software, manipulate data, and create physical+digital interactions — is an essential creative capability, and that students who master those capabilities will be well-placed to invent the future. We are now accepting applications for our inaugural class in the Fall of 2018.

We would love the opportunity to meet you so you can learn more about what we have to offer! At the open house information sessions, Dan O’Sullivan (ITP Chair), Shawn Van Every (IMA Director of Undergraduate Studies) and Midori Yasuda (IMA Admissions Administrator) will be available to answer any questions you may have.

We seek students from all different backgrounds who want to experiment with interactivity, creativity and technology in the real and digital worlds. No prior design or programming skills required!


Our next on-campus open house will be:

Monday, March 26, 2018 from 3:30-5pm

Please RSVP to


We are also hosting another Facebook Live Information Session

Thursday, March 29, 2018 at 4pm. 

Tune in Live here.
