Digital Media

Contemporary life is a whirlwind of information. You can tune in, log on, switch to, or pick up ideas and art and designs just about anywhere. Media is culture – and it’s everywhere. As you read, watch and listen, take note:  it could be you reporting live, taking the next important picture, writing an award-winning article (or blog), or editing the next great viral video sensation.

The digital media minor encourages you to be a creative media practitioner as well as a critical consumer through hands-on classes and co-curricular activities. Through your studies, you’ll develop professional storytelling skills in aspects of the program you select, including publications, design, video, audio, and journalism.
