The BS in Computational Media (CM) offers a thorough education in all aspects of the computer as a medium: the technical, the historical-critical, and the applied. Program graduates have significant hands-on and theoretical knowledge of computing and an understanding of visual design and the history of media.
To anticipate the various fields students of Computational Media may pursue after graduation, threads are available within the major. Each student will choose an LMC thread, which will serve to foster the creative side of the program, and a Computer Science thread which makes up the technical side of the degree. The Literature, Media, and Communication threads include the Film, Performance and Media, Game Studies, Interaction Design and Experimental Media, and Narrative threads. The threads with Computer Science courses are Media, Intelligence and People. More information can be found on the Degree Requirements page.
The art challenges the technology, and the technology inspires the art.
