The International Media Architecture Master Studies (IMAMS) program offered by the University at Buffalo and the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar is a two-year Masters program providing students with an international perspective on the emerging field of Media Architecture.
Students spend one year at each institution and are awarded two separate, nationally recognized degrees: the Master of Science in Architecture (MS) from the University at Buffalo and the Master of Science in Media Architecture (MS) from the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. Located two hours from Berlin by train, the Bauhaus offers courses in a variety of subjects including Media Art, Media Culture, Media Design, Media Systems, Media Architecture, Public Art and New Artistic Strategies, among others. Building on the robust tradition of the Bauhaus movement of the 20th century, the school has a long-standing reputation for supporting an eagerness to experiment, openness, creativity, a close link to industrial practice and an international perspective. Courses are offered predominantly in English, and an intensive German language course for non-native speakers is available to all students participating in the program.
A limited number of scholarships covering travel expenses between Buffalo and Weimar are available on a competitive basis.
