Program Description:

PIMA is a three-semester, part-time, non-degree advanced certificate program providing students with training, theoretical and technical background, and practical experience in the conceptualization and production of collaborative, multi-disciplinary artworks presented in performance settings. Specifically, students learn to use technology as a means of extending their personal artistic practice and facilitating cross-disciplinary artistic collaborations. Students with diverse academic, artistic, professional, and cultural backgrounds enter the program and work in collaborative groups throughout the course of study, with close mentoring by faculty members.
Most students come to the program with an established career or career goal in an arts field, and generally seek to continue in that field after completing the certificate, utilizing the program for advancement and skills development. The advanced certificate is primarily intended for students already holding the highest degree available in an art-related field who wish to supplement their studies, or students who wish to continue their studies without making the time commitment required by a full-time program, such as the PIMA M.F.A.
