The interdisciplinary graduate program ACE (Arts Computation
Engineering) at the University of California, Irvine, is now accepting
applications for Fall 2004 admission. Please refer to the ACE website <> for program information and
application instructions.

The ideal candidate will have a history of interdisciplinary interests,
represented by dual undergraduate degrees, a double major, or
major/minor, that integrate Arts, Engineering and/or Computer Science,
or a degree in a relevant field and demonstrated relevant experience.
Experience in interdisciplinary digital arts practice and in negotiating
the intersections of research, engineering and arts, aesthetically and
theoretically, is expected. By definition, such a candidate will be
atypical, and may be characterized as an engineer with an artistic bent,
an artist with a technical bent, or an artist/technologist with an
interest in social science or cultural theory, etc. ACE encourages
socially engaged work and a critical position with respect to digital
media and computer technology is desirable. Grounding in critical theory
and/or cultural studies will be an asset.
