Digital Culture & New Media - Minor

The transformative influences of digital communications are widely recognized in a variety of professions that students will eventually pursue — whether business, publishing, the arts, journalism, education, the government, or academia. The goal of this minor is to educate students in the history, theory and practice of new media. Courses in English, Sociology, Art and Art History, and Computer Science will help prepare students to participate in, utilize, critically engage with and assess, and perhaps most importantly, contribute creatively to the new global information networks, resources, and communications of the digital age.

Students who complete the Minor in Digital Culture and New Media will develop a foundation for future employment, higher education, or research in these areas. This curriculum will provide a foundation for jobs as Web Designer, Web Reporter, Web Producer, Web Communications Specialist, Media Specialist, Social Media Marketer, User Interface Designer/Developer, New Media Arts, and so on. It will also provide a good foundation for graduate studies in Digital Humanities, in Information Studies, English, Sociology, and Art and Art History.
