Why study Digital Arts Communication?

Digital Arts Communication (DAC) is an eight-course Minor available to Arts Majors.

Professionals in almost every field need to reach more people, using richer media, in more interactive ways. In the Digital Arts Communication Minor, students learn how to design with digital images, text, sound, and video. And most importantly, they learn to design, develop, and test media for both public and private sector organizations, ranging from the high-tech sector, to corporate communications, to the creative industries. 

Digital Arts Communication courses provide students with a hands on, experiential learning environment. In each course, students engage in design and production, contributing to a portfolio which they can show to Co-op, future employers, or graduate schools.
