TAM Info Sessions

Interested in learning more about TAM? Come to our next TAM Info Session:

April 9th, ATLS 100, 4:00pm–4:50pm

If you like what you hear, you can fill out the 1-page TAM Declaration Form to become a declared TAM student. Then you are eligible to sign up for our 800-section ATLS courses, which includes the first "core" course, ATLS 2000.

Please note that enrollment priority is determined by the TAM Declaration Date. Most of the declared TAM students have already signed up for 800-section ATLS courses at our March 12th Registration Open House. But, we still have spaces in ATLS 2000!

Technology, Arts & Media Program

The Technology, Arts and Media Program, based within the ATLAS Institute, offers two undergraduate programs: a Minor in Technology, Arts and Media (MTAM) and a Certificate in Digital Media (CDM). The Minor is intended for students who wish to pursue research and careers related to digital media, whereas the Certificate is intended for students who are interested in the fundamentals of digital media production.

TAM is now a concentration for General Engineering Plus!

General Engineering Students can now earn a focus in Technology, Arts & Media. Read the details here.

ATLAS is now part of the College of Engineering & Applied Science!

You may have heard that College of Engineering & Applied Science is the new academic home for ATLAS educational programs, and you may have wondered how this will affect the TAM Program. The answer is that this administrative move will in no way affect the nature of the TAM Program,  the location of TAM,  the TAM curriculum, or your ability to take TAM classes. In fact, this move will only make TAM stronger by helping us to grow our faculty and course offerings.

ATLAS and TAM are designed to be homes for interdisciplinary research and education that are open to any student on the CU Boulder campus. So while our organizational flowchart chart may have changed a bit, you can rest assured that TAM will remain the same, and will welcome any student who is interested in integrating technology, arts and media into their CU Boulder experience.
