Digital Culture & New Media - Minor
A minor or other concentration, such as an option or specialization, is a secondary set of courses that can be completed as you earn a degree in your major area of study.
"New media" describes digital technologies that adapt and transform traditional communications media (e-books or even videogames are new media versions of books and novels; musical and recording instruments become programs and apps on your laptop or iPad; television and radio become multimedia podcasts, YouTube channels, and so on; painting and printmaking are transformed by computer graphics and design, etc.).
"New media" also includes Digital Humanities, a field of scholarship and research concerned with the intersection of computing and the humanities.
Digitally-mediated communications are vital to a variety of professions that undergraduates will eventually pursue — whether business, the arts, journalism, education, the government, or academia. This minor provides an interdisciplinary education to prepare students to participate in, use, critically engage with and assess, and perhaps most importantly, contribute creatively to the new global information networks, resources, and communications of the digital age. Students completing this minor will develop a foundation for future employment, higher education, or research in these areas.
