The Digital Arts and Media program is designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of digital media creation. The program aims to enhance computer literacy, to analyze current and emerging technologies, and to challenge the student to produce unique and creative multimedia projects. Each course offers students the opportunity to develop as an artist while participating in the shared experience of media production.
