The Center for Integrated Media is a supplemental concentration offered by many MFA programs at CalArts. IM is designed specifically for advanced students whose creative use of technology—in particular digital media—goes beyond their primary areas of study, or métiers, in art, dance, film/video, music, theater and writing. The Center for Integrated Media supports all IM students across CalArts, enabling them to apply new technologies and integrate multiple media and disciplines into new forms of expression.
The Center for Integrated Media is conceived as an interdisciplinary laboratory where students can combine art, science and technology. It offers specialized IM classes, workshops and seminars, and supports a wide range of projects involving performative and environmental installations, video, sound, music, robotics, gaming, programming, interactivity, computer graphics and the Internet.
