MINORS IN RELATED FIELDS
It is recommended that Media Arts majors use their free electives to take a concentration of courses in another department in order to earn a minor in a related field: for example, Art, Business or Computer Science, Dance, English, Journalism, Music, Theatre. Students should consult with their advisors to design an appropriate concentration outside of the department.
