B.S. in Digital Communications and Media

Subtitle to 140 Characters

The B.S. in Digital Communications and Media addresses the demand for professionals in the converging and fast-changing media environment. You acquire the most current knowledge of media concepts and participate in focused, hands-on classes in your chosen concentration. Our faculty members are industry experts who bring their artistic and technical expertise and their experiences with production and workflow management to their teaching. You select one of two concentrations: time-based media: video and motion design, with a focus on linear production and post-production for video and broadcast media, or interactive media: Web and mobile devices, with a focus on design and programming for websites, mobile devices, and other interactive displays. Both concentrations emphasize early contacts and networking in the industry. Our graduates find positions at television networks, animation and film production companies, Web and game studios, in-house media departments, or start their own companies. Others earn graduate degrees in animation, interactive design, media law, and media management.
