About Us

Students who complete the Digital Arts & Culture programs will be able to:

  • Analyze digital and electronic media systems, explaining what these platforms do and how they do it.
  • Engage with complex digital issues: online, offline, via ubiquitous computing hardware and software.
  • Organize information, both architecturally and visually, structuring software, web sites, advertisements, social media, and more.
  • Demonstrate hands-on, collaborative, and cross-disciplinary, media production with artists and designers.

Coursework is drawn from three schools/colleges at UWM: Peck School of the Arts, College of Letters and Science, and School of Information Studies, with an overarching interest in the study and practice of Arts, Information, and Media.
