The Emerging Media major is a joint program offered by the Roy H. Park School of Communications and the School of Humanities and Sciences. Upon entering the program, students choose one of three concentrations: media entrepreneurship concentration, media computation, or media design and production.

This new major requires an exciting and demanding mix of classes including computer science, new media economics, video production, motion graphics and animation, and video game development. Beyond mastering the skills necessary to work with both communications and technology, students learn to critique and analyze the place of emerging media in modern culture.

Chad Hurley, Co-founder of YouTube and Avos, meets with students.
