Catalog 2015-2016 > College of Arts and Letters > Department of Communication > New Media Production Degree Interdisciplinary Program
Faculty: Art, Communication, English and Writing, Information Technology Management and Music faculty participate in the delivery of this degree program. Coordinator: Santiago Echeverry, Associate Professor, Art Department.
New Media Production (NMP) is an interdisciplinary program including courses offered in art, communication, information and technology management, music and writing, and is administered collaboratively by these departments. The program focuses on designing and creating applications for interactive media, mobile platforms and the Internet for both commercial and artistic intent. NMP studies the associations between these areas in the context of academic scholarship, aesthetic exploration and technical research. After completing the required courses in the core, students can choose to concentrate on a specific area and continue their research in the field of their choice in order to be better prepared for graduate school or the professional world.
Students are required to take 16 core courses, totaling 62-65 credits, and designated elective courses offered within the participating programs, for a minimum of 78 total credits.
Can take COM 380 or COM 323 to satisfy core. If both are taken, one will count toward a COM elective.
Can take ART 430 or ART 463 to satisfy core. If both are taken, one will count toward an ART elective.
The senior project is discipline-specific, so only one of the 499s is taken, depending on the student’s area of interest and expertise, and requires a faculty adviser for the project.
