Department of Digital Media


While some instructors are simply concerned with specialized studio techniques, components of creativity, and concepts of design creation in their educational curriculum, recent studies on critical thinking regard art practices as a medium for the expression of individual thought. In order for a student to convey a concept, then that student’s mind should be well developed along with his technical skills. As such, our educational mission has always been towards a cross-disciplinary approach, graduating creative thinkers who not only have the necessary technical expertise, but the ability to explore and make connections between a wide variety of ideas, methods, and ways of thinking. We aim to be capable of impacting the world and leaving a mark on it.



Committed to providing students from diverse academic backgrounds with Digital media strategies to improve and succeed no matter what their initial skills are. Equally committed to developing a professional commitment to their field, work, and themselves; and preparing them to be members and leaders in their profession, as well as learning how to act both as individuals and as team members. Demonstrate an attitude of openness so that they seek new and unusual opportunities to learn and create.

  2. To learn how to be innovative and creative in the digital ecosystem, deal with specific briefs, and progress effectively semester after semester.
