This course aims at providing a contemporary open education in which humanities, science, digital software, and other fields, as well as adjacent art fields such as performing art, sound art, literature, and fashion converge and communicate based on traditional art fields such as painting, installation, and video. Besides, the Department of Intermedia Art aims to produce “future-oriented self-reliant youth artists” preparing for an art revolution in the upcoming fourth revolutionary era. To this end, the Department of Intermedia Art has prepared a convergence curriculum that includes tool education, theoretical education, and practical education, focusing on the core concepts of connectivity, compatibility, and coexistence. Students will prepare for the future as a communication-oriented youth artist who finds and solves artistic problems by intensively conducting one-on-one customized projects for one year with full-time professors who are actively engaged in the art field.

Operation plan

The Advanced Major Course in Intermedia Art aims to produce self-reliant young artists who are able to adapt themselves to the new art environment and meet the demands of the times in the 21st century that is undergoing tremendous change. To this end, the focus is on providing open convergence education that links art, humanities, and technology.
