The BA program in digital culture equips students with the technical skills they need to create computational media and the ability to know when or why to apply them.
Students learn to create computational media, which is computation combined with objects, sound, video, time, space, culture and bodies; breathe behavior into media, objects or systems by programming; and think critically about how computation impacts lives and how culture makes a difference in how people experience computational media, a critical skill in this dynamic age.
Armed with skills and reasoned judgment, graduates work in cultural communication, marketing, design, social media, health, education, entertainment and creative arts, and all areas in which culture is shaped by technology and computational media. All students gain techniques to change the world and communicate using contemporary computational media, a vital power in the 21st-century. Some go on to invent fresh techniques.
Digital Culture - Film Concentration
The digital culture program with a concentration in film is for students wishing to integrate digital aspects of film into new media. Students complement their knowledge of digital culture with discipline-specific courses in the School of Film, Dance and Theatre that focus on the foundations of filmmaking practices, historical and theoretical aspects of film, knowledge of the film industry and hands-on knowledge of digital processes in filmmaking.
