Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Electronic Media, Arts, and Communication)

Rensselaer is poised at a time of great opportunity. As new technologies drive the economy and shape society, our historic mission and our core academic strengths position us to capitalize on this technological revolution.

The Rensselaer Plan serves as our catalyst for change. A comprehensive strategic plan for the Institute, it defines our core enterprises for the Institute, and sets forth our goals for the coming years.

To fulfill The Rensselaer Plan, we continue to pursue certain areas as our highest priorities.

A greatly enhanced research portfolio is the single most transformational objective of The Rensselaer Plan. As one of our highest priorities, we are dramatically expanding our research enterprise to develop specific focal areas within the disciplines of biotechnology and information technology leveraging our existing strengths.

To achieve this goal for research, we are expanding the faculty, and recruiting constellations of renowned faculty who will create critical mass and specialized expertise for our ambitious research goals.

The B.S. in Electronic Media, Arts, and Communication (EMAC) at Rensselaer is one of the first undergraduate programs of its kind in the United States. EMAC is jointly offered by the Arts Department, and the Department of Language, Literature and Communication at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The EMAC program integrates creative and critical thought with expertise in advanced electronic multimedia. The interdisciplinary approach of arts and communication produces entrepreneurs and critical thinkers who will use technology in innovative ways in commercial, academic and artistic spheres. The curriculum provides theoretical frameworks for understanding and shaping the impact of these technologies on today’s society as well as the professional skills to work with a wide range of electronic media.
