All students wishing to study this major should apply to Fine Art.
Creative Technologies is a program that prepares students to become future leaders of many new artistic fields and industries. Students who graduate with a Creative Technologies BFA will go on to pursue careers spanning gaming, film, animation, motion graphics, video production, and fine arts. Some students will also pursue graduate programs in these fields.
Multidisciplinary learning and practice in Creative Technologies provides students with the ability to flourish at the ever-changing intersections of technology, media, art, and innovation. We take a dualistic approach of teaching critical thinking and conceptual development alongside the important technical underpinnings.
Creative Technologies classrooms are rigorous and focused. Students are provided with dedicated mentorship and guidance to develop their ideas, and our program has facilitated many ongoing collaborations between students and Virginia Tech faculty. Many Creative Technologies undergraduate students get paid to work on funded research projects.
