Degree Earned
Bachelor of Arts: Interdisciplinary Studies - Web Media and Design

Interdisciplinary Studies recognizes that academic disciplines do not exist in a vacuum, that to fully understand a subject one must move beyond the silos of the individual disciplines and integrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that are to be found in related, complementary academic subjects. Thus the student will study at least two different subjects in the Interdisciplinary program, looking for connections between them.

About the Concentration:

The Web Media and Design concentration combines the conceptual and visual strengths of an Arts education with the technical skills needed to develop web-based media. Small class sizes and well-equipped computer labs give students access to the resources they need to develop a strong body of work for graduation and future employment. Graduates are prepared for careers as interactive media artists, web designers and developers.
