Digital Media Design, Minor

The DMD minor is a programming-intensive exploration into interactive computer graphics. The interested student is encouraged but not required to take courses in Fine Arts (in the SEAS SSH category, for example) to gain the artistic knowledge and skills that would augment the DMD technology emphasis. Suggested relevant Fine Arts courses include Digita Design Foundations and 3D Modeling. The DMD minor also encourages exploration of the connections of computer graphics programming with human cognition and interactive experiences. A capstone EAS499 Integrative Project is required to link the DMD minor with the student’s major.

SEAS Second Major or Minor Option

Students interested in a second major (College students only) or minor with SEAS are required to meet with the Undergraduate Curriculum Chair from the major/minor department you wish to declare to discuss requirements and obtain approval on the Second Major or Minor form. The approved form must be returned to the SEAS Research and Academic Services Office, 109 Towne Building.
