The Public Digital Arts Cluster is composed of faculty members in Art and Art History, Engineering, Music, and Theatre/Dance. Its mission is to promote interdisciplinary teaching, research, and creative work, using art to strengthen the human component in science and technology, and using science and technology to enrich works of art. The cluster also gives public expression to the University’s commitment to creative research and scholarship.

Through its four departments and schools the cluster offers several courses specifically designed to link the arts and technology. In collaboration with affiliate faculty from multiple departments, it also offers a Certificate in Public Digital Arts. The goal of the certificate program is to provide students with the skills they need to apply cutting edge technologies and multiple media platforms to new forms of artistic expression.
