The B.A. in Digital Media 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, and provide extended experience in working in multidisciplinary teams on realistic problems. The program is administered through the Department of Game and Interactive Media (GaIM) in the Nicholson School of Communication and Media (NSCM) with the College of Arts and Humanities. It recognizes that there are many combinations of courses which meet the needs of individual students. Two specializations -Game Design and Web and Social Platforms – lead to a Bachelor of Arts degree.
