The Digital Art major at Northeastern University comprises the three principle technologies of dynamic and static image generation – photography, animation, and video. Students have the option of either focusing on one of these areas or creating their own path by exploring courses from all the areas. An intensive studio-based program, the curriculum provides students with knowledge in the efficacy of digital media in conjunction with critical theory. Extensive computer facilities enable students to become highly proficient in the leading-edge skills necessary to produce their work.
