Digital Arts Communication is an eight-course Minor.
Professionals in almost every field need to reach more people, using richer media, in more interactive ways. As a Digital Arts Communication minor student, you’ll learn how to design with digital images, text, sound, and video. And most importantly, you’ll learn to design, develop, and test media to effectively shape the user’s experience by communicating information and arguments, telling compelling stories, and expressing complex ideas.
Digital Arts Communication courses provide students with a hands on, experiential learning environment that is grounded in theories and principles of communication as an audience-centred practice. In each course, you’ll engage in design and production, contributing to a portfolio you can show to Co-op, future employers, or graduate schools. The skills and techniques you learn and develop in the minor are sought out by both public and private sector organizations ranging from education and civic organizations, to corporate communications, to the creative industries.
