The Minor in Multimedia Design has been created by the College of Communication and Fine Arts to address the needs of a group of rapidly evolving and flexible disciplines. Students completing this complementary minor with their major will enhance their preparation for the rapidly growing fields of visual media, including graphic design, web design, publications design, and multimedia design. This is an interdisciplinary minor and combines elements of CMU's existing programs in Art and Design, Journalism, Broadcast and Cinematic Arts, and Computer Science.
Media technologies are, and will continue to be, in great demand as computer applications replace the work formerly done by other methods. There is a need for well-trained individuals who understand the skills necessary to perform these functions. It is the goal of this minor to assist in preparing students for careers in these exciting new disciplines.
