For the first time ever, University of Washington will be offering the option of an Interactive Media Design degree (BA) through an undergraduate program unique to the UW-Bothell campus! Initiating in Fall 2013, the program will allow students to develop not only a technical understanding of interactive media design, but also the management abilities, analysis techniques, and problem solving skills needed to apply such practices to next-generation technologies.
Throughout the course of the program, students will work to create a personal media portfolio that can be used beyond their academic studies. They will also receive the opportunity to explore the practical uses of media design in certain specialty areas including:
- Math Specialties
- Physics Specialties
- Database programming
- Art Studies
- Computer Networking
- Diversity Studies
- Media/Cultural Studies
- 2D/3D Animation
- And more!
To qualify for this program, a few prerequisite classes are required, including CSS233* “Interactive Media Technologies,” which was taught this past quarter (Spring 2013) for the first time by Professor Timothy Stewart.
