The digital media major prepares students to become content creators in a world that is constantly being shaped by technology. This preparation includes the cultivation of analytic and critical thinking skills as well as the ability to work and communicate with others on complex interdisciplinary projects integrating digital music, digital art and design, web-based technologies, and computer programming skills.

Students will learn to integrate their Christian world view as an extension of the creative process as revealed in digital content, presenting themselves as moral and responsible Christian professionals. The digital media major emphasizes a broad-based, theoretical understanding of the delivery tools, which will allow them, as life-long learners, to keep pace with rapidly changing technology over the course of their careers. Students also learn the technical skills necessary to begin as content creators following graduation. Students who successfully complete the digital media major can expect entry-level professional positions or admission to graduate school upon graduation.
