Undergraduate Academic Catalog 2012-2013
The Bachelor of Arts in New Media Arts
The Bachelor of Arts in New Media Arts provides students with an opportunity to develop the technical and artistic skills needed to serve as practitioners in the fields of multimedia development and design, web design, and video production. As a degree that straddles two worlds--the fine and the applied arts--the degree program encourages both creativity and practical application. Students will have an opportunity to develop a strong foundation in the traditional fine arts and learn to translate these skills to new media contexts. They will also learn to approach the technical aspects of new media applications from the sensibilities of an artist as well as a technician.
With its balance between the artistic and technical aspects of new media production, the new media arts degree program should prepare students to meet a growing marketplace need for multimedia artists and to rise to the top of the pack of individuals competing for these positions. While providing an undergraduate degree option for students interested in entering careers in the fine and applied arts, it would also provide appropriate preparation for graduate study.
