Design, Arts and Technology

The fusing of the disciplines of art, communication, media, music, information technology and music technology has created many new career opportunities including:

  • Web Authoring and Design
  • Sound Editing and Audio Production
  • Multimedia Art
  • Film and Video Production
  • 2D Animation
  • Graphic Design
  • Interactive Media Design

While majoring in a single discipline such as art or communication provides invaluable theory and depth of knowledge, it is difficult to gain the skills and tools from the wide range of disciplines essential to prepare for the career fields mentioned above. This program was designed by faculty from Art, Communication, English, Information Technology and Music, to provide a broad, interdisciplinary exposure to the multiple academic disciplines impacted by contemporary information technology tools and techniques. The breadth of the Design, Arts and Technology (DAT) major combined with the depth of a complementary or second major prepares students for a challenging and rewarding career in the digital world.
