Courses and Requirements

The introduction of digital media into creative fields has changed the very nature of their study and production. Musicians, scientists, creative writers, film makers, and visual and performing artists have developed multiple fluencies with digital media. This, in turn, has made collaborative and cross-disciplinary work practically inevitable. The program in digital arts provides a formal framework for the exploration of these creative possibilities.

The minor in digital arts consists of five courses: the five courses are chosen in consultation with the Chair of the Digital Arts Program Committee, including at least three from the digital arts studio course list. Courses counted toward this minor cannot also be counted toward another concentration or minor.
