NYU launched an interdisciplinary undergraduate Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Interactive Media Arts (IMA) in the Fall of 2018. 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 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!

Due to Covid-19, IMA is currently hosting open house informational events both either via Zoom or in-person as noted below. Please join us to learn more about IMA at one of our upcoming information sessions:

Friday, September 16, 2022 – 8pm ET  

Saturday, October 15, 2022 - 11:30am ET 

Monday, November 21, 2022 – 8pm ET Zoom recording

Starting Fall 2022, IMA will again be able to resume individual appointments on the floor for admissions related questions. In accordance with NYU's Covid-19 policy, visitors need to be registered in advance through the NYU system and will be required to upload proof of Covid-19 vaccination and booster. Those with valid religious or medical exemptions must also be approved in advance. This process can take up to a week to process. If you have any questions or wish to schedule an individual appointment, please email

Please watch our archived informational sessions below!
