The MA in Interdisciplinary Arts guides and supports artists and educators who wish to expand their creative practices and deepen their understanding of interdisciplinary art theory, history, and technique. Students are immersed in an innovative curriculum focused on building connections among visual art, movement, sound, writing, and drama. Graduates of the Interdisciplinary Arts MA program emerge with a broader and more coherent understanding of contemporary art practice, new and expanded technical skills, and a professional portfolio that will accelerate their creative careers. Designed to be completed in one calendar year, this energizing and transformative program is organized as an accessible and viable option for working professionals.
The MA Intensive Summer is a new option for completing the Interdisciplinary Arts MA as a low-residency initiative of the Interdisciplinary Arts Department of Columbia College Chicago. This program plan offers the same innovative curriculum as the current one-year MA degree, but is scheduled across two consecutive summer sessions. Students following this track attend nine-week summer sessions for two summers, and work independently under the advising guidance of the InterArts faculty in the interim year. This structure is intended for those who have more concentrated time in the summer to attend classes, but who also want to produce work during the focus reflection year. The vigorous pace of the summer immersion sessions is balanced with independent art practice and research, allowing for total engagement with faculty and a cohort of classmates from around the country and world. Generating ideas, networking, and collaboration, the Intensive Summer program offers the creation of a contemporary interdisciplinary body of work.
