MINOR IN DIGITAL MEDIA
Dedicated to the exploration of electronic media and the computer as a creative tool, through a program of cultural thinking and technological skill.

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.
