The engineering, arts and science disciplines involved in media training, research and education at Arizona State University have come together to create the Arts, Media and Engineering (AME) graduate education and research program. The education component of this program consists of formalized graduate concentrations within existing degrees that allow faculty and students to combine extensive training in their chosen discipline offered through their home department with hybrid engineering-arts-sciences training offered through AME. This paper states a basic education and training problem in arts and media and presents a program that was formed at Arizona State University to address this problem. The structures, participation, associated sub-areas of this program are also described.
