Is anything else required to be considered for a major in Arts and Entertainment Technologies (AET)?

We do not require a portfolio or audition to be considered for the AET major; however, after applying for admission, applicants are welcome to submit optional supporting documents highlighting your skills and experiences in technology and the arts:

  • We recommend that you submit a resume. Be sure to highlight your involvement in the visual and performing arts, technology-related hobbies or student organizations and other experiences that have informed your interest in the arts and entertainment technologies. Submit your resume via UT's Document Upload System.
  • You may also submit an optional portfolio to show examples of your work in animation, gaming, video, digital art or music. Portfolios can be uploaded as a Miscellaneous Admissions Document using UT's Document Upload System. Your portfolio must be a .pdf file and no larger than 25 MB.
