Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies
Increasingly, the field of media design and production require strong technology skills with programming and hardware. Current production techniques are used not only in film, television and the performing arts, but in healthcare, engineering, web content, corporate communications, and higher education. If you wish to enter a career in these cutting-edge disciplines, you will need a strong foundation in both media design and technology.
