Digital media studies is an interdisciplinary minor consisting of 18 credit hours, including DMS 101 and CSCI 203. Students must designate one of four emphases:
• Digital communications
• Digital arts
For the first three emphases, students take the 6 hour core of DMS 101 and CSCI 203, and the remaining 12 hours from the emphasis courses listed below. The computing emphasis requires CSCI 343 as part of the 12 hours beyond the core. For the generalist emphasis, students take the 6 hour core of DMS 101 and CSCI 203, and the remaining 12 hours from at least two emphases.
Students majoring in computer science may not select the computing emphasis; students majoring in art may not select the digital arts emphasis; students majoring in Journalism or Integrated Marketing Communications may not select the digital communications emphasis. The same course(s) may not satisfy requirements for both a major and the DMS minor. Students who complete relevant internships, study abroad courses, or special topics courses will consult with the digital media minor director prior to enrollment in the course for approval and to determine the appropriate category for the course.
