Undergraduate degrees in Digital Media & Design will take one of two forms: a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) or Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree. Both of these degree programs start with a strong foundation that covers a broad spectrum of Digital Media & Design skills and applications. While the core is nearly identical, the BFA, as the professional arts degree, has additional studio courses, requiring that 65% of the total course credits focus on the creation and study of art and design. The BA is considered a liberal arts degree and allows the flexibility for a student to combine individual concentrations in Digital Media & Design with courses offered in the Schools of Engineering, Business and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, making the most of UConn’s status as a “R1” (research one) classified university. The BA degree is the better option for students looking to double major or minor in another subject or who plan to study abroad during the academic year. While students are asked to declare a degree at time of application, there is flexibility for them to change their degree option once they are at UConn. A concentration is required to be declared prior to the student’s junior year.
