The minor offers students the opportunity to acquire a deeper understanding of how digital technologies are transforming society and culture. Participatory cultures are emerging through games and social media, and whole new modes of interaction are being crafted online, whether it’s a game, social media site, or mobile application. From the disruption of established industrial models to the creation of new social norms, this minor asks students to create and analyze digital media that directly engages in this transforming and transformative culture.
For the Digital Media & Culture minor, at least 16 credit hours in designated courses are required.
DMC minors have the opportunity to work on projects and collaborate with faculty on research at the Engagement Lab, an applied research and design lab at Emerson College devoted to understanding and cultivating a just, participatory democracy for a digital age. DMC minors also have the opportunity to participate in the Salzburg Academy on Media & Global Change, a three-week summer project that gathers young people from over 30 countries around the world to collaboratively build media responses to some of the biggest problems facing society today.
