Bachelor of Arts in Digital Media Production




What will I learn?

The Department of Digital Media & Journalism represents disciplines that combine methods from both the humanities and social sciences in the study of how people share and represent ideas through the mass media. Building upon a solid liberal-arts foundation, students in our programs develop theoretical and practical knowledge through challenging and engaging coursework and hands-on experiences that will support their intellectual and professional growth and prepare them for careers and graduate study.

The Department offers three academic majors, each leading to either the bachelor of arts (B.A.) or bachelor of science (B.S.) degree: Digital Media Production, Digital Media Programming & Management, and Journalism. We also offer a minor in Journalism and, in conjunction with the Department of Art History (School of Fine & Performing Arts), an interdisciplinary minor in Film & Video Studies.

The Digital Media Production program offers students an opportunity to develop cutting-edge professional skills that will prepare them to succeed in the growing and diverse field of digital media. Production majors learn the importance of engaging storytelling, solid research, and careful attention to ethical considerations; they likewise learn how technology allows them to communicate effectively. By utilizing writing and production skills in the classroom as well as in the surrounding community, students demonstrate their ability to use the latest tools of digital audio and video to create high-quality, marketable content for film and television.

Digital Media Production majors are strongly encouraged to minor in a discipline in the arts, sciences, or humanities. Such minors would include but are not limited to Anthropology, Art History, Asian Studies, Biology, Black Studies, Communication Studies, Economics, History, English, Geography, History, International Relations; languages: French, German, Italian Studies, Spanish; Latin American & Caribbean Studies, Music, Philosophy, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Religious Studies, Sociology, or Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
