BA Concentrating in Digital Media
Fine Arts Requirements
General Arts Requirements

       Dedicated to the exploration of electronic media and the computer as a creative tool, through a program of cultural thinking and technological skill. Digital III is a class on desktop video and sound art, using the Apple professional video environment. Students in Digital IV act as designers and artists for clients within our community, gaining real life experience and also investigating the social role of the artist. Digital V facilitates the independent direction of the student artist, and also 'taking the computer out of the box' - using the computer as a springboard into installation art, performance, and new genres.
