Who and what the heck is the DMSA?
We offer academic and social support for Digital Media students!

The Digital Media Students Association (DMSA) is a group of students who offer academic, social, and career support to students within and beyond York University's Digital Media program. We act as liaisons between Digital Media faculty, staff, and students, and we promote Digital Media on- and off-campus.

The DMSA is organized by a Council of students, consisting of elected executives and representatives, appointed ex-officio members, and active general members. Everyone is welcome!

Digital Media is an undergraduate program jointly run by AMPD and the Lassonde School of Engineering. With a unique blend of art and computer science, the program is structured around the making of Computational Art.


Get to know your lovely council, and possibly join our team!

Well met! I am Fayaz Malik. Novice fencer, intermediate guitarist, and expert eccentric. I enjoy iced tea and using big words even when they don’t photosynthesis with the sentence. If you ever want to lend a hand, I might treat you to iced tea.
