Rochester is the ideal place to explore the connections between digital technology, critical analysis, production, and innovation. Our digital media studies (DMS) major combines:

We believe that those who understand the history and theory of media will be better producers of them. Likewise, those who know how media are produced will be better able to analyze them.
