The Digital Arts and Culture capstone course (DAC 661) is being offered for the very first time next semester, Spring 2017. The plan is to offer it each spring semester, so if you’re planning on graduating in Spring 2017 or Fall 2017 with the DAC major, you should definitely register! There are currently some open spots.
Also, even though the prerequisites say that you should be a DAC major, we are not currently enforcing that, so if you are pursuing the DAC certificate, this would be a great option for a Practicing the Digital Arts elective. See?
It will be taught by the Associate Dean of the Humanities, Dave Clark, and he is planning an exciting and useful agenda of data visualization techniques, as well.
