The Digital Arts & Design curriculum is specifically designed to pair art and technology to inspire and help you create groundbreaking designs for motion graphics. Throughout the curriculum, you will explore the entire design process—from concept to creation and from presentation to implementation. In these courses, you will learn the ins and outs of the current hardware and software used by professionals in the design world. As you master these concepts, you will be challenged to think about design in a new way—first understanding the intended audience for a project, then using that knowledge to direct the design of your message. You will apply this process across a wide spectrum of design projects, including 2-D and 3-D art, typography, video, and motion graphics. Learning the essential design and technology elements of this field is just one part of the Digital Arts & Design degree program. You will also have courses focusing on communication, physical science, and popular culture that will prepare you for your career in the motion-graphics industry.
Bachelor's Objective Our goal is to provide you with the focused knowledge and understanding of digital production needed to qualify for entry-level industry positions as graphic designers, motion-graphic designers, animators, digital-media authors, video editors, and various other positions in motion-graphic production. Additional skills that you will acquire in digital video production and sound design will broaden your opportunities for a variety of positions in the industry. In addition to technical proficiency and creative development, your education will help you develop critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that contribute to lifelong learning, providing you with the tools needed to help sustain a long and productive professional career in the entertainment and media industries.
