Digital Media Minor
Requirements for the Digital Media Minor
The digital media minor allows students to synthesize introductory and intermediate classes from computer science and visual arts that explore the interaction between creative and computational processes. These include basic courses in digital art, traditional studio art, web programming and programming for image and sound processing. Students will explore a range of visual and electronic applications, and learn the basic tools necessary to incorporate visualization mechanisms into work within other fields of study. Requires the following six courses, three from computer science and three from visual arts:
CSC 107 - Creative Computing: Introduction to Computer Science (strongly recommended)
CSC 234 - Data Visualization, or CSC 240 - Web Programming, or CSC 245 The Computer Science of Computer Games
CSC 245 - The Computer Science of Computer Games
AVA 160 - Introduction to Digital Art
AVA 262 - Real and Recorded Time - 4D Art
One non-Digital Visual Arts studio course, chosen in consultation with the minor advisor.
Courses cross-listed in both CSC and AVA do not count towards this minor.
A Computer Science major wishing to achieve this minor may not count the introductory CS course towards it. Instead, the student must take any fourth course in Visual Arts (Visual Arts Studio or Art History course), chosen in consultation with the minor advisor.
A Visual Arts major wishing to achieve this minor must take a fourth CS course numbered above 110, chosen in consultation with the minor advisor.
A CS-Art interdepartmental major is not eligible for this minor
