BA in Digital Arts & Sciences

Explore the Digital Edge of Storytelling, Animation, and Game Design.

The Program
The BA in DAS degree crosses traditional college boundaries between arts, communications and technology.  Students will immerse themselves in every aspect of the new and developing digital landscape — from computer illustration to 3D animation, from digital storytelling to video-game design.  This degree provides graduates with applicable technical and critical-thinking skills.

“With the sum of my experiences as a multimedia performer, Digital Worlds Institute has the instruction, technology and resources to take my creations into a new frontier.” -Juliet Dibenedetto, BADAS student

Cohort Experience
The BA in DAS degree program offers students the unique opportunity to be a part of a cohort experience, where they join a community of learners to take a set sequence of courses together. Students are only accepted into the program during the Fall semester, which allows them to network and build relationships with their classmates. This experience also ensures that students can work one-on-one with faculty, participate in discussions and have the opportunity to ask questions. Through a strong commitment to teaching, our faculty comes from diverse but complementary areas of expertise.
