Skill up for a career in digital media

The concentration in Digital Arts is for students who want to develop digital design skills in computer graphics, motion graphics, video production, and web design. It pairs well with any major, especially Business and Communication Studies.

What is a concentration?
Concentrations provide an opportunity for students to take a focused set of classes in a discipline outside of their major in order to enhance their grounding in the liberal arts, augment their major coursework, or gain additional competencies related to career goals. Concentrations may also be the building blocks of an Interdisciplinary Studies degree. The concentration will be listed on a student’s transcript along with their major.
