B.S. Digital Media, Digital Arts concentration

Department of Art and Digital Media

The B.S. in Digital Media is designed to allow students the opportunity to explore, in depth, the new exciting field of Digital Media under the guidance of recognized working artists, designers, and educators. It combines courses in digital media with a balanced curriculum of art studio, art history, and liberal arts.

To focus their studies, students select one of three major concentrations:

  • Graphic Design
  • Animation
  • Digital Arts

However, the degree is flexible and can be tailored to students' interests. For example, students can choose to enhance their studies with courses in Communication, Information Technology, or professional internships. No matter the focus, the Digital Media student will gain broad-based training in a wide range of new media using powerful software and equipment, as well as an understanding of Digital Media concepts, history and heritage in the traditional media.
