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.


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 animation, computer-based visual communication, digital imaging, video art, motion graphics, web art, projection mapping and live and interactive performance.
