Get Technical! Get TAM

The Technology, Arts & Media Program is part of the ATLAS Institute on the University of Colorado at Boulder Campus. ATLAS is an innovative campus-wide initiative in education, research, creative work and outreach in which information and communication technology is the enabling force.

The Technology, Arts and Media Program offers three programs: a Minor in Technology, Arts and Media (MTAM) and a Certificate in Digital Media (CDM), and a Digital Media Bootcamp. Our programs are designed to teach students creative thinking, technical skills, and visual communication within creative studio-based environments.
