2022 - 2023 Undergraduate Catalog [FINAL EDITION]

Digital Media Informatics, Gaming & Artificial Intelligence Specialization, BA


 

Digital media informatics looks at the interdependent relationships between humans, computers, and media systems. This relationship is deemed interdependent because each helps shape the other. Human agency creates both computers and media systems and humans are, in turn, shaped by those systems as well. Significantly, it is within this interdependent set of relationships that media texts are both consumed and created. The purpose of the digital media informatics major is to ensure graduates attain key competencies, an appreciation of the depth of the field, and an understanding of how they interact with both computers and information systems. The program is also designed to give students maximum flexibility in choosing a specialized focus that can be adapted to the changing job market and social environment. Therefore, in addition to a digital media informatics core, students pursue a specialization or cognate of courses to meet their interests and needs. Finally, digital media informatics students take part in a two-semester digital media informatics capstone experience during the senior year.

  • Choose one specialization and complete four courses from the selected specialization.
