Specialized Honours Bachelor of Arts in Digital Media
Students in the Digital Media program complete a common core curriculum in the first 18 months of the program. They then have the opportunity to choose one of three streams of study – Digital Media Arts, Digital Media Game Arts or Digital Media Development – according to their interests. The Digital Media Arts stream focuses strongly on digital arts creation and production, Digital Media Development is oriented more to computer science, and Digital Media Game Arts involves students in game theory and production.
While pursuing their stream of choice, Digital Media students come together for several courses in their upper years. Media Signal Processing in the second year, Collaborative Project Development/Collaborative Project Development in Games in third year and the Capstone course (Digital Media Project) in fourth year involve large and small group projects that allow students to advance their specific interests and gain valuable large-scale development skills.
Students enrolled in other programs at York may choose to pursue a minor in Computational Arts and Technology through the Department of Computational Arts in the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design.
