The Art, Culture, and Technology (ACT) program at MIT offers a Master of Science in Art, Culture and Technology (SMACT), a rigorous and selective two-year graduate program.

At MIT, admission to each graduate program is coordinated by the academic department to which the graduate program belongs. The Art, Culture, and Technology program is a discipline group within the Department of Architecture. Therefore, all applicants seeking admission to the SMACT degree program apply through the Department of Architecture admissions office. Application information can be found on the Architecture website.
