- Digital Media Studies is an interdisciplinary major comprising fourteen and a half courses.
- For those students in the Class of 2018, the major is counted in the division (humanities or natural sciences) in which a majority of those fourteen and a half courses are taken.
- Beginning with the Class of 2019, the major is counted in the division (humanities or natural sciences) in which seven or more of those fourteen and a half courses are taken.
Three courses may overlap between the DMS major and another major, and two courses between the DMS major and another minor.
Requirements for Distinction in Digital Media Studies
To graduate with distinction in DMS, students must have a GPA of 3.7 in the major. To receive highest distinction in DMS, students must have a GPA of 3.85 in the major.
If approved, up to three transfer courses may be used toward DMS major requirements. Transfer students beginning their coursework at the University of Rochester with junior standing, may use a maximum of five transfer courses towards DMS major requirements with appropriate approval. In most cases, transfer courses cannot satisfy the upper-level writing requirement.
