Technology has transformed the way we learn, work, and interact. Consider the speed of our digital conversion: Just twenty years ago there was no smart phone, mp3 file, streaming video, cloud storage, or GPS. Google wasn’t a verb and your social network was limited to your home, school, and office.
If you often find yourself thinking about digital media—how it’s changed our world, what the future holds and how the technology can be applied and improved—consider pursuing a B.A. in Digital Media, Arts, and Technology. This interdisciplinary degree combines the broad perspective of the liberal arts with technical skill, so you’ll study technology history and theory at the same time that you’re learning to use the newest programming languages, digital tools, and computer systems.
Digital Media, Arts, and Technology—abbreviated DIGIT—is Penn State’s only undergraduate degree in digital humanities. DIGIT meets growing employer demand for professionals capable of both critical analysis and creative production of digital media.
The curriculum is designed so that DIGIT majors can easily add a second major within the School of Humanities and Social Sciences. If a career in the field of interactive entertainment is your goal, pursue the Game Development minor.
