DMA Technology Summer Camps atHarvard UniversityJune 29th – August 21st


For students who want a pre-collegiate experience at a college they’re interested in attending or who just want to get away for the summer and explore a new city, Digital Media Academy offers the best of both worlds. Learn on the Harvard University campus, eat in the same dining hall as its students and, when you’re not in class, explore the surrounding area. Digital Media Academy selected Harvard not only because of its superior reputation as a liberal arts and public research college, but also because of its superior campus location in scenic Cambridge, Massachusetts, near Boston.

The main campus is centered on famous Harvard Yard in central Cambridge, a unique community with a strong mix of cultural and social diversity, intellectual vitality and technological innovation. That campus also extends into the surrounding Harvard Square neighborhood, with noteworthy restaurants and shops. Harvard’s 80-plus libraries, numerous museums, diverse landscapes and stately architecture set the tone for this world-class learning experience. Please note, the residential program at Harvard is only available to DMA Studios students for summer 2015.

Bush and Barack Obama) among its alumni, as well as the heads of state of numerous foreign countries. Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg got their starts at Harvard, as did physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer.
