How to Apply
Unlike other programs, departments, and labs at MIT, the Media Arts and Sciences Program welcomes and encourages applications from students with varied backgrounds—from art to engineering, music to physics, education to neuroscience. The online admission form may be accessed here. Media Arts and Sciences applicants should be:
  • committed and accomplished in their area of concentration prior to application, with an emphasis on creative extensions of that domain;
  • able to work in an engineering environment; and
  • proficient at computer programming and/or hardware design.
Women and underrepresented minorities are encouraged to apply. Read more about MIT's nondiscrimination policy.
