Digital Media Minor at Iowa STate
The College of Design's undergraduate minor in Digital Media is intended to familiarize students with the use of digital media in the design process. It covers the knowledge and techniques necessary to generate digital representations including:
Each department in the College of Design offers its own digital media courses that may be applied to the multidisciplinary Digital Media minor.
This minor requires at least 15 credits of coursework. At least three credits of fundamental courses at the 200 level must be taken in the student's primary major (see list below).
At least nine of the 15 credits must be taken at Iowa State University in courses numbered 300 or above. At least nine of the 15 credits must not be used to meet any other college or university requirements except the credit requirement for graduation.
Courses taken outside Iowa State may be accepted for transfer credit after review of the syllabus and materials by faculty in the Digital Media area. This minor may be applied retroactively after graduation. If you are interested in obtaining a minor in Digital Media, you may return and take listed courses following graduation. Qualifying courses taken prior to graduation may be used to fulfill the 15-credit program requirement.
Special Note for Architecture Majors
Because the Digital Media minor requires ARCH 230, only another three credits of the courses used to satisfy the minor may be drawn from the professional option area that is part of the architecture program credits. The other nine credits for the minor must fall in the unrestricted elective category.
