The digital arts applied minor provides you the opportunity to explore the role of technology in the arts and the arts as an application of technology. You will work in several different media and develop a foundation in programming, exploring aspects of design from several different angles.
As you pursue the digital arts applied minor, you will use the skills and patterns you’ve acquired to produce a project that integrates material from across the digital arts.

You’ll complete one co-curricular activity, possible options include:
- Serve as a member of a web-focused applied group. (One term minimum.)
