Courses and Requirements

The program in digital arts prioritizes production over study and provides a formal framework for the exploration of both individual and collaborative creative projects. The digital arts minor can benefit any number of concentration areas, such as Art, Art History, Cinema and Media Studies, Music and Theatre, or other areas of the curriculum where digital production can be used to enhance or expand studies in those areas that are related to technology use.

The minor in digital arts consists of five courses, and should include a 300 level course: 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.
