The Bachelor of Media Arts is an interdisciplinary program that prepares students for creative production in digital and interactive media; equips students with computing, digital design, and creative teamwork skills; and emphasizes independent learning, professional experience, and communication skills. The program includes a core set of Media Arts courses which all students complete; students then select one of five concentrations (Applied Interactive Media, Digital Art, Interactive Media Leadership, Media and Performance, Screen Studies), in which to specialize.
