The Digital Storytelling Program is an interdisciplinary B.A in the School of Visual Studies, that combines narrative and conceptually driven studies with new and emerging multimedia tools to achieve a balance between aesthetic and imagination. Through a variety of academic units – including art, film studies, information technology, art history, English, theater and architectural studies – students take courses in writing, critical studies, art, video production and animation. Like other forms of storytelling, digital storytelling translates human knowledge and experience to reach audiences for artistic, commercial and social justice purposes.
In arenas ranging from public health to video games to museum education, digital content creators are in high demand across business, government, nonprofit and artistic research sectors. Training in the field requires literacy in narrative, multimedia and networked communication, as well as all elements of digital production, including writing, audio and visual production, and design.
