UM to Offer Online Bachelor's Degree in Media Arts

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA - The University of Montana will be offering it's first Bachelor of Art's degree that can be earned fully online starting in autumn of 2014.

The UM School of Media Arts will launch its online bachelor's degree in integrated digital media beginning in the fall semester. Courses will focus on interactive media, the web and internet, gaming and digital design applications.

School of Media Arts Director Mark Shogren said the online option also will allow students to pursue their degree in a more flexible way. "It's going to be a really dynamic new way to get more bang for your buck," Shogren said.

The degree requires 42 core credits and six elective credits, as well as UM’s standard general education credits, which also can be completed online. Distance-learning students will never need to visit campus, but the school will offer a physical connection to the program for local students.

There are no prerequisites for students to enter the program. UM students enrolled in any of the first-year classes can declare the media arts major, and on-campus students are welcome in the online program along with students from across the globe.

“We want to not only create online courses, but online experiences,” Shogren said.
