Digital Media Design Degree Information

Change How People Communicate Every Day

The World Wide Web of today, like television in the 1950s, is in its infancy. The web is evolving and showing us what it can do at its best - sharing ideas, telling stories, entertaining, building communities, expanding empathy and bringing us together. Like television, the web is a delivery platform for content of endless variety and type. With the Digital Media Design major, you will be well-prepared for creating, editing and managing professional visual, written and audio web content for business, education, news outlets, the arts and more.

You will gain core knowledge in digital design and delivery, work collaboratively with fellow students to research and present media concepts, and use current technology to create professional
websites. Graduates with this major can continue study in the fields of Design Innovation, Digital Content Management, Digital Marketing and Data Analytics, Graphic and Web Design, and Media Design.
