Focusing on the human side of computing, the interdisciplinary minor in new media is for students who want to use emerging technologies to tell stories, to create powerful artwork, and to transform the world by imagining new ways that human beings can interact with machines and each other. Drawing on insights from art, communication, computer science, literature, psychology, and other disciplines, the new media minor includes a combination of hands-on courses known as ‘application electives’ and theoretical courses referred to as ‘context electives.
