COM 103 - Introduction to Digital Arts & Culture (4 Cr.)

How are art, popular culture, and the media industries “digital” today? In what ways have the development, spread, and use of digital technologies, from media production equipment and software to social media and online platforms, shaped what art and culture is today – how it is created, how it circulates, and what it means to people? This class will develop an understanding of the culture, aesthetics, and business of digital media through a mix of studying and using digital technologies, in both critical analysis and hands-on production projects. This class is the gateway into coursework in the proposed Digital Arts major, but also provides knowledge and skills for anyone interested in the intersection of creativity, culture, and technology. Spring semester. Kimball, program faculty.
