MA Programs in Engineering. In SCI-Arc’s Master of Arts in Fiction and Entertainment one-year program, students work with world-renowned professionals in the worlds of film, fiction, animation, marketing, games, and documentary making to build new forms of architectural practice. (This program is pending WSCUC approval.) What we think the world looks like is largely determined by fiction and entertainment—extraordinary shared languages through which we exchange ideas and engage with our environment. It is impossible to underestimate the importance of media in the production of culture. Given the vast array of media available, it is urgent to widen the scope of architecture beyond buildings alone. Why shouldn’t architects design the next Hollywood blockbuster? Virtual reality environments? Viral videos? Political campaigns? Deeply embedded in the entertainment industry of Los Angeles, this program is a place to start telling new kinds of stories about the alternative realities of the twenty-first century. The program requires attendance in the fall, spring, and summer terms. [-]

MA Programs in Engineering. The intersection of craft, science and technology. Material Futures is a two-year Masters course dedicated to exploring how we will live in the future through trans-disciplinary practice and expert collaboration. Our aim is to actively re-think the future Through collaboration, risk-taking and blurring the boundaries between craft, science and technology we aim to look beyond existing disciplines to anticipate our future needs, desires and challenges for the 21st century. We encourage a wholly multi-disciplinary approach to design Taking materiality as the starting point of the design process, literally the things we can touch, feel, interact with and observe, we integrate high and low technological materials and processes to respond to the environment around us. Our students explore and come from a diverse range of disciplines, mostly, but not limited to, the worlds of fashion, architecture, industrial, communication, textile, critical, digital and speculative design. Research is intrinsic to our design process. We advocate research-driven design We believe that it is only by observing and analysing how we live today that we can begin to consider and explore how we can live more sustainably tomorrow. Considering the current and future context of design decisions is key to our ethos, combining social, political, scientific and economic inquiry and insights to help inform future design scenarios and speculations. Reasons to apply You’ll be exposed to new materials, processes, technologies and design methodologies and use materiality as a platform to critically interrogate, explore and make sense of how we should occupy...
