The Digital Art Minor

2014-15 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

The Digital Art minor provides a media-focused course of creative study in digital art to complement several majors at Elon.  Concentrated course-work in this medium aids in providing students with visual literacy and a critical engagement with technology–– skills and experiences that enable students to become effective global citizens in a visually saturated and technology-centered world.

With a digital art minor, students will:

  1. Become knowledgeable about the equipment, materials, and processes of digital art.
  2. Gain an understanding of the conceptual and aesthetic components of still-image, moving-image and interactive-based artforms.
  3. Learn how to examine and critically discuss digitally-based visual and aural works
  4. Understand the impact of technology on contemporary art and visual culture.
