The Digital Arts & Sciences Program is an interdisciplinary major, which spans the boundaries between the sciences and the arts. Students take advantage of programs in digital art, math, computer science, and communication & media.

The program’s objective is to combine artistic and scientific skills and interests to develop creative talent, with a strong technical foundation. Graduates from this program pursue careers in media such as product design, video games, film, graphic design, animation, web design, and architecture.
