<nettime-ann> Graduate Studies at the MIT Media Lab

Interested in Creative, Cutting-Edge, Interdisciplinary Graduate  

If you are thinking about going to graduate school, passionate about  
helping people, and interested in shaping the future of technology,  
consider applying to the MIT Media Lab. The Media Lab has one of the  
best graduate programs in the country, one that offers unique  
opportunities to do creative, cutting-edge, and radically  
interdisciplinary research. It is one of the few places in the world  
where leading scientists, designers, and scholars -- in fields as  
diverse as robotics, art, neuroscience, and education -- work together  
to revolutionize how humans experience, and can be aided by, technology.

Students come to the Media Lab through the Program in Media Arts and  
Sciences, and all students receive full financial support (tuition,  
medical insurance, and a stipend). Each year, the program accepts  
approximately 35 new graduate students. Student backgrounds range from  
computer science to psychology, music to graphic design, architecture  
to mechanical engineering, to name a few.

Each graduate student works in one of the Media Lab's 27 research  
groups under the guidance of a primary research advisor (see http://admissions.media.mit.edu/admissions/research) 
. When you apply, you should specify up to 3 possible advisors whose  
research interests resonate with your own.  To find out more about a  
particular research group, check out the group's website.

For more information, see http://www.media.mit.edu/admissions. If you  
have questions, or would like to arrange a visit to the Media Lab,  
please send a message to admissions09 {AT} media.mit.edu.  Also feel free  
to email me with questions or if you are specifically interested in  
applying to my group.
