This 18-hour minor is designed to provide digital media support for all types of majors-particularly in careers that require message presentation comprising digital photography and video; presentation graphics; computer-assisted training; and desktop, CD, DVD and World-Wide Web publishing. The program is managed by the Department of Journalism and Mass Communication, but a maximum of two courses may be substituted from other departments to give the minor an interdisciplinary flavor.
Before being admitted to a program, a student must satisfy the requirements listed in the ACT/SAT Placement Information section of this catalog. Although JMC 102 , Creating Media Messages, is not required for the digital media minor, a student must make a score of 70 or higher on the Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Exam or have an ACT English score of 24, an SAT Critical Reading (prior to March 1, 2016) score of 550, or an SAT Reading + Writing (after March 1, 2016) score of 590, in order to declare the minor.
Digital media minors may take the required JMC classes without meeting the prerequisites of JMC 100 and JMC 102 . All other prerequisites will apply. Freshmen and sophomores may take JMC 233 or JMC 261 after completing JMC 201 , but they cannot take an advanced course until their junior year.
