New Media Major
What do you get when you cross a top-notch computer science program with the resources of a world-renowned communications program? A new interdisciplinary degree from IC’s School of Humanities and Sciences and the Roy H. Park School of Communications: a B.S. in emerging media. “The emerging media degree prepares students not only for hands-on production of new media, but more importantly for the challenges in identifying promising technologies and creating the infrastructures for them to be economically viable,” says Diane Gayeski, dean of the Park School. With three concentrations — media computation (in Humanities & Sciences), media design and production, and media entrepreneurship (both in the School of Communications) — you can learn to design or create new media and technology or find out what it takes to start a new media business.
