The Emerging Media track allows students to integrate the multiple domains of art, storytelling, and technology. It is designed to: Provide a solid foundation in techniques and theory in one focused area of competence.
Provide a broad understanding of related disciplines including arts, humanities, and technology.
Provide extended experience in working in multidisciplinary teams on realistic problems. The program is administered through the School of Visual Arts and Design. It is recognized that there are many combinations of courses which meet the needs of individual students. Three specializations – Graphic Design, Character Animation, and Experimental Animation – lead to a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. The School affirms that a theoretical and working understanding of the historical meanings and studio applications of the human image are critical in the education of Visual Art and Art History students. To develop such an understanding, Art courses often utilize images of clothed and unclothed human figures and, in certain studio classes, live nude models. Note: Emerging Media majors must have continual access to a computer. Contact the UCF Computer Store or see the website (http://www.cstore.ucf.edu) for the minimum hardware and software specifications.
