Qualifications for the Major

Digital Media Arts majors must have a cumulative G.P.A. of at least 2.00, including a minimum grade of C- in all digital media arts courses. It is expected that students in the program must have a GPA much higher than 2.0 to continue as a DMA major and all majors are subject to review relative to their continuation in the program. Transfer students and students changing their major to DMA should meet with the program director to develop most appropriate course of action based on transferred courses, previous coursework and student’s interests.
