Digital Media is a studio concentration in the undergraduate program of the Department of Art and Art History that focuses on new media and digital art. Courses explore digital media as the primary tool, medium, and environment for art and design. Classes in Digital Media are taught in the department’s digital classroom in 211 Woods Hall, a fully functional space for the teaching and creating of computer-based fine art.
Students in digital media develop the necessary conceptual framework and production skills in digital art and design, while also exploring contemporary, historic, and theoretical ideas that inform current practice. Particular topics covered in the curriculum include computer-based visual communication, digital imaging, time-design, digital audio and video, digital narrative, interactive and internet-based art, typography, digital document layout and production, digital fine art practice and digital media production, and portfolio development.
