BFA - New Media/BSc (Computer Science)

Bachelor of Fine Arts - New Media/ Bachelor of Science (Computer Science)

The 5-year combined degrees program allows you to graduate with two degrees. Your new media studies prepare you to be a versatile new media professional and adaptable in a changing industry.  The rapid advancement and integration of digital and interactive technologies within our culture has radically changed the way we communicate and interact with each other.  The BFA-New Media degree was created  to meet the present and future need for content creators capable of applying both linear and non-linear strategies to problem-solving situations.  By combining traditional art, music, drama practices, theory, and criticism with digital and interactive media, the Department of New Media provides students with the skills, knowledge and experience essential for personal and professional excellence and growth in the field of New Media communication. 

Combine this with studies in computer science, delving into the study of algorithms and data structures and their applications in designing new and efficient solutions to industrial, technological, environmental or social problems.
