Our Story

The story of the IMA Studio and Kepple Hall.


It began with a realization that different departments were all doing work in Digital Media. Instead of each of us doing our own thing, it just makes sense to harness the power and strengths of each department into a single program: Integrated Media Arts. The Integrated Media Arts program is an umbrella for anything that students would like to do with digital media. Digital Media is all about the use of technology to create, store, and visually represent and present information to people for a variety of purposes. These purposes can range from the presentation of a set of data, to communicating ideas, to marketing a product, to art for art’s sake, and everything in between. This requires a strong contribution from multiple specialties. Studio Art, Information Technology and Computer Science, Communications, and English work together to create a powerful program to fulfill the needs and desires of students interested in working with digital media. With the strengths of the designated Program of Emphasis in Integrated Media Arts or the power to create your own path with Juniata’s Individualized Program of Emphasis, we have what you need to get you to where you want to be.
