Web Design/Interactive Media Design undergraduate concentration provides its students with the skills and creative adaptability to work professionally and independently in the web and interactive media design spaces. This concentration engages students in creative approaches to web/application design and development, locative media, interactive and wearable electronics, interactive installation and performance, interactive narratives, and the Internet of Things. The concentration is an interdisciplinary area of study drawing from art, design, business, communications, literature, and computer science. Simply put, this concentration aims to create what the industry has affectionately dubbed “unicorns” due to their scarcity: equal parts designer, creative problem solver, and programmer. Drawing upon their experiences, graduates will be prepared to pursue careers as web or mobile designers and developers, interaction designers, UX designers, creative technologists, programmers, interactive installation and public space artists, among others.
