STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ Students at the University of Connecticut will soon be able to get a degree in the relatively new field of digital media and design.
UConn’s Board of Trustees last week approved two new degree programs. The school’s Department of Digital Media & Design will begin offering a bachelor of arts and a bachelor of fine arts degree next fall. More than 135 students are already involved in the program.
Digital media and design encompasses everything from creating visual effects for television to making computer images of molecules and cells to innovative digital advertising.
The school says the fine arts program will focus on creating the digital media, which students earning a B.A. will specialize in using digital media techniques in marketing, science, and other fields.
