Why T&T?

Increase your employability

Interdisciplinary options

Best of both worlds

The small program is fueled by the resources of a large research university.

Flexible schedule

The choice of a full-time or part-time schedule is yours.

The price is right

UCF has been recognized by Forbes, The Princeton Review and Kiplinger’s for being one of the most affordable and best-value universities in the U.S., and 25% of T&T students receive assistantships or fellowships.

I have recommended this field to colleagues or friends who show brilliance, curiosity, and an interest in pursuing the philosophical and humanistic dimensions of digital media.”
