Interactive Design for Media

Minor Code - u129

The interactive media design minor is intended to close an existing gap between the College of Creative Arts and the College of Media by providing a finely-tuned curriculum supplement for journalism and strategic communications students that delivers emergent digital and interactive design skills while expanding learning opportunities for art and design students in the study of narrative methodologies, multimedia and visual storytelling. This minor is restricted to students with a major in either the College of Media or the College of Creative Arts. 

Through collaboration and shared support between the College of Creative Arts and the College of Media, students will be able to acquire critical competitive skills in interactive design and visual narrative using new technologies that will make them highly competitive in an environment that is increasingly determined by digital and visual media. To complete the interactive media design minor, students must schedule an appointment with their advisor in the School of Art and Design or the College of Media.
To earn this minor, a minimum grade of C- is required in all minor courses.
