Digital Media


The digital media minor allows students to synthesize introductory and intermediate classes from computer science and visual arts that explore the interaction between creative and computational processes. These include basic courses in digital art, traditional studio art, web programming, and programming for image and sound processing.

Students explore a range of visual and electronic applications, and learn the basic tools necessary to incorporate visualization mechanisms into work within other fields of study.
