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.
Students may choose to follow one of three recommended focus areas (Animation, Game Design, or Programming) or propose their own minor curriculum. All 3000-level and above coursework must be completed at the University of Florida and all course and grade prerequisites must be satisfied
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 can be one of the three focus areas or proposed by the student. The student’s application must provide a rationale explaining how their courses create a cohesive program and what the student hopes to gain through taking the chosen courses. *Students who have taken Programming 1 & 2 do not have to take DIG 3873 or DIG 3878.
NOTE: Due to course sequencing, DAS Minor applications are only reviewed during the spring semester. You may still submit an application if you’d like to have it in the queue for when the review process begins.
