Why Study Digital Arts?

Digital technologies are reshaping all aspects of our culture; the arts and its related commercial and entertainment industries are no exception. The Digital Arts Minor enables students to explore digital production tools in print, Web, video, animation, game, CD, DVD, performance, installation, interactive experience, information visualization, and public space. In addition to production skills, the Digital Arts Minor builds critical literacy in reading and understanding images, sound, and information as well as in interacting in mediated social networks. It encourages creative thinking and problem solving, often cited as necessary skills for the 21st century and the pace of change in technology. The minor provides the education and fosters skills now crucial to being a citizen, consumer, cultural producer, and innovator in today's global visual and information culture.
