Major Areas of Study: Digital Media Design


Central to Digital Media Design is digital media convergence, a contemporary development that is reshaping the potentialities of design.  Students learn a variety of approaches to a variety of design challenges, as they pursue and develop strategies in innovative problem solving.  Students with a Bachelor of Arts in Digital Media Design will have a wide range of career options, including multi-media design, interactive design, webpage design, video and audio production, display design, marketing and advertising, as well as many other possibilities.  Digital Media Design prepares the student to bring together the visual and auditory arts through the various media of communication.
