The Digital Media Minor includes courses from the departments of Art, Communication Arts and Sciences, and Technical Communication and Media Production. This minor consists of 24 credits, 6 of which must be upper division. This minor is designed to provide skills that will increase employment opportunities in the field of digital media communication. In addition to required core courses, students choose one of the following concentrations: motion media, interactive media, content design or still media. The motion media concentration deals with television and corporate video production. Students in interactive media work with computer graphics, interactive applications and Web-based media production. The content design concentration focuses on the design of the message from the visual and written perspective. Still-media students explore with photography, photojournalism, and computer imaging. ARTH 1500 is recommended to fulfill the General Studies Arts and Humanities requirement. Students should contact an advisor to plan a course of study for their particular minor. If a student has taken anyone of the required courses as part of your major, another course in the minor must be substituted.
