Transart Institute’s international MFA in New Media program is designed for working artists to develop a sustainable creative praxis in
— three summer residencies in Linz, Austria plus two optional winter residencies in New York
— and two school years of independent project work with supporting mentorships – wherever they work and live.

The innovative program focusses on content and context. Students work in the genres which best communicate their ideas including animation, architecture, curating, cyberart, digital and experimental media, film, gaming, graphic design, installation, painting, performance, photography, robotics, sculpture, sound, text, video, virtual reality.

The program is intended to lift the boundaries between applied and fine arts, traditional and new media, artists and scholars. Students are free to pursue work in any media art-related genre and to create their own course of study.
