About

Computational Media, Arts & Cultures represents a collection of related activities at Duke University. Originating in the Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies and the Mellon-supported Visual Studies Initiative, CMAC has evolved to include various graduate programs and collaborative research initiatives.  We are organized around an interdisciplinary PhD program and labs co-sponsored by Art, Art History & Visual Studies, the Literature Program, the Franklin Humanities Institute, and Information Science + Studies, among others. Related degree programs include the MA in Digital Art History/Computational Media within the Department of Art, Art History & Visual Studies, the undergraduate and graduate Certificates in  Information Science + Studies, and, starting in Fall 2021, an interdepartmental undergraduate major and minor in Computational Media.
