The Bachelor of Arts degree in Media and Information and the Bachelor of Science degree in Media and Information uniquely prepare graduates to design high impact media products by focusing on: 1) understanding and harnessing the power of media through interdisciplinary artistic, qualitative, and quantitative methodological approaches and theoretical perspectives, 2) using the design process to inform the creative act and fuel innovation using current and emerging media technologies, 3) using media to address pressing social issues and other meaningful themes, 4) gaining fluency with the tools, practice, and techniques used in the creation of current and emerging mediated experiences, and 5) interpreting and critiquing media in the context of audiences, users, historical precedents, socio-cultural patterns of use, and ethical implications of technologies. Each degree program provides students with the tools and inspiration needed to analyze, evaluate, critique, and manage many forms of media products, services and applications and each provides a solid foundation for anticipating trends in media and communication technologies to prepare students for a field characterized by rapid and continuous change.
