The PhD in Emerging Technologies and Media Art Practice in the Department of Critical Media Practices is now a STEM-designated degree. The designation, which is conferred upon eligible degree programs that include science, technology, engineering and mathematics training, allows international students who graduate from the program to qualify for STEM OPT and remain in the U.S. for an additional 24 months, beyond the regular 12-month option.

This is a wonderful opportunity for current and prospective international students and we are proud to be able to support them in this way. Thanks to the team who worked on this effort, including Associate Professor Tara Knight, Associate Chair of Graduate Studies Chris Hammons and ETMAP PhD candidate Toma Peiu.
