Immersive Media, Minor
This is an interdisciplinary minor that provides a foundation in the design and development of immersive experiences in the exploration of human connection and interaction through media and technology. Focusing on the core principles, tools, and techniques of immersive media development, students have an opportunity to learn to tell stories, prototype new worlds, and explore creative workflows that will help shape the future of design.
The minor serves students who are interested in the following areas: human-computer interaction, enhanced realities, virtual reality, augmented reality, augmented virtuality, extended reality, and cross reality.
