Digital media is revolutionizing communications. In the areas of business, communications, digital art, entertainment, science, technology, and the humanities and social sciences; this leading-edge communications tool is demonstrating a remarkable capacity to convey information – no matter how intricate – effectively and powerfully.

Digital media has opened a dazzling array of previously unimagined communication, visualization, entertainment and social interaction possibilities. It has become vital for presenting complex ideas with simplicity, and for crafting highly original messages with exceptional impact.

“A dynamic melding of digital art, humanities, science, technology, and business is driving how digital media is conceived, produced, delivered and consumed.”

Digital Art & Entertainment: video/film, 2D/3D animation & visualization, web and mobile app design & development, interactive media and digital game design;
Business: digital marketing, branding, advertising, social media and entrepreneurship;
STEM: visualization and data analysis/representation;
Digital Humanities & Digital Social Sciences: integration of new technologies with research, teaching and outreach.
