MIN 221 | Visual Fundamentals for Digital Media

Explores color theory, two-dimensional design, typography, layout, and web design.


MIN 240 | Introduction to Interactive Media

Introduction to Interactive Media provides hands on experience in creating and publishing interactive media in the web environment. Students will create simple animations; work with images and video; and be introduced to the basic/intermediate level of the animation and interactivity features in HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript. Projects include designing, developing and publishing click-through banner ads and user interfaces for digital devices. For deeper understanding of interactive media, basic visual perception theories will be discussed in the short lecture series.  Prerequisites: INF186, INF120, & MIN221


MIN 245 | Introduction to 3D Modeling

Introduction to 3d Modeling will teach students, using Maya, the basic processes and elements of 3d to enable the student to understand modeling and texturing at their most basic levels.  Upon completion of this course the student should be able to create and texture a model from start to finish.  The student will also have a grasp of 3d theories that will allow them to easily move between other 3d programs on their own.


MIN 307 | 3D Lighting & Texturing

This course explores the various lighting and texturing techniques applied to computer-generated graphics. Discussion will cover complex theories, concepts, and principles of lighting and texturing. The core focus will be the application of materials, textures, and lighting to invoke an aesthetic quality of output.

 

MIN 352 | Digital Media Projects

Digital Media Projects is a classroom-based environment for individual projects. Projects will be proposed by the student, approved by myself and reviewed over the course of the semester.

 

MIN 375 | Impact of Computer games & Virtual Worlds

This course will critically examine computer games and virtual worlds through the lens of current events, trends and research. Topics explored include both theoretical and applied context in the areas of social science, culture, humanities, education, business, economics, law, media, technology and science.

 

MIN 445 | Intermediate 3D Modeling and Animation

Intermediate 3d Modeling and Animation will teach students, using Maya, the basic processes and elements of 3d to enable the student to understand modeling for the purpose of Animating as well as the basic techniques and principles of animation.  Upon completion of this course, the student should be able to create, rig and animate a model from start to finish as well as render out the animated short.  The student will also have a grasp of 3d theories that will allow them to easily move between other 3d programs on their own.

 

MIN 452 | Advanced Digital Media Projects

Advanced Digital Media Projects is a classroom-based environment for individual projects. Projects will be proposed by the student, approved by myself and reviewed over the course of the semester. Because this is a continuation in the digital media projects progression and a senior level class, expectations will be much higher.

 

MIN 496 | Senior Practicum

Students work on team projects that allow them to integrate academic experience into real world situations. Required electronic portfolio is reviewed and evaluated with revisions applied. Students undertake assignments to build organizational competencies such as communication skills, teamwork, and critical thinking

 

MIN 499 | Independent Study

Through this independent study, the student will engage in individually supervised work involving the research, development, and design of a Web Application based on Flownomics. Additionally, the student will apply their research, designs and conclusions through the creation of a Design Process Book. The student will therefore be required to construct a compelling UX/UI experience around the social impact and trends of current & up-and-coming musicians

EMB |140 Media Aesthetics

A course grounded in theoretical concepts with practical application.” EMB 140 is one of the core-required courses for the Electronic Media and Media Informatics majors and is designed to provide the underlying aesthetic basis for the media production courses offered in the two majors along with the media aspects of Journalism. We see this course as a key tool in any media creation toolbox, from journalism to documentaries to game design to commercials to movies.
