BA in Digital Arts & Sciences

Minor in DAS

The Digital Arts and Sciences (DAS) Minor crosses traditional college boundaries between the arts, communications, and engineering. Students will become versed in contemporary issues in social and interactive media, critical thinking and creative design solutions. The DAS minor gives students experience working in collaborative teams on media projects including digital storytelling, animation, and game design including serious and applied games.

Applications should consist of a proposed curriculum for the minor, a rationale explaining how the proposed courses create a cohesive program and what the student hopes to gain through taking the chosen courses.

Additional Requirements

  • All 3000-level and above course work must be completed at the University of Florida
  • All course and grade prerequisites must be satisfied

Courses

All students must complete DIG 3020 Foundations of Digital Culture (Fall only); however, this does not need to be completed prior to taking other courses. The remaining four courses are proposed by the student and approved by the department. The student’s proposal must provide a rationale explaining how the proposed courses create a cohesive program and what the student hopes to gain through taking the chosen courses.
