New Media

In today’s society, we are surrounded by technology everywhere we go. Always attached to the screen of a computer or phone, it can be easy to forget that the videos we are watching, websites we are visiting, and apps we are exploring, were at some point just ideas in the mind of a creator. Those studying in New Media will be training to become those creators, taking their knowledge of film and putting into practice to tell stories in the smallest of explosive moments.
