Optional Specializations

Focused Areas of Study For Creative Media Majors

The core of your Creative Media curriculum will consist of courses in one primary area of focus and two complementary areas. These "specializations" reflect focused creative disciplines in which artists can find a professional application for their expressions.

To see how these specializations match up in the entire four-year curriculum landscape, see the Creative Media major curriculum.
