Hi Ashley---

We're an avant-garde program in a very actively committed art town.

Graduate programs in the University at Buffalo are quite flexibly
overlapped. This is an outgrowth of the Department of Media Study's
35-year commitment to alternative media.

The department's MFA now touches on film, video, documentary, virtual
reality and fiction, digital poetics, networking and social media,
robotics, and installation.

We have excellent interactive relationships with departments in art,
anthropology, American studies, comparative literature, English, the
renowned poetics program, and theater. A number of students have spliced
together MFA and PhD programs in other departments (English, Comp Lit,
American Studies, Anthropology). Collectively, these are departments
with excellent reputations, in a large New York State based university.
