About the Minor

The Digital Media Studies (DMS) minor is a cross-disciplinary program intended to equip undergraduate students with digital computing, design, and communication skills that complement their primary academic focus and allow them:

  • to develop basic web-authoring and programming skills
  • to critically evaluate digital information
  • to apply digital skills and knowledge in multiple fields

The tracks emphasize different but inter-connected paths of digital technology and problem-solving. This cross-disciplinary program addresses a growing academic and employment interest of students. Because it is an interdisciplinary minor, DMS is administered by the Department of Writing & Rhetoric.
