Digital Media Studies
The mission of the Digital Media Studies program within the Department of Visual Arts & Design is to provide a learning environment that promotes critical thinking, creativity, and technological expertise in the study of new and emerging digital communication technologies. Digital Media Studies features a prominent interdisciplinary focus across the College of Liberal and Fine Arts and the College of Science and Technology. The curriculum is designed with courses in Art, Communication, Computer Science, CIS, and English, among others, to offer a broad set of skills that prepare students for a technology driven 21st century job market. If you are interested in working with the latest of today’s technology, while learning and developing it’s potential as a tool for communication, then DMS is the major for you.
We have three concentrations that you can focus in: Graphic Design, Multimedia Production (animation, video, digital imaging) or Video Game Design.
The DMS degree addresses a growing regional and national need for graduates who understand how to design and utilize digital media technologies to suit the needs of contemporary audiences and employers.
