Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs

Digital design and media art majors may work toward either a bachelor of fine arts (B.F.A.) or bachelor of arts (B.A.) degree. The B.F.A. degree is the highest standard, professional degree for undergraduate art and design programs, with a curriculum focused more on art and design courses than liberal arts. To earn a B.F.A., DDMA students at Wilkes must pursue a cognate minor in art and enroll in 21 credit-hours of art- or design-based electives, plus two alternate DDMA core courses as defined. A minimum of 2 art history courses are also included in the requirement totaling to 65% of courses taken in the topics of art and design.

In the course sequence below the courses are currently IM, but DDMA may be appropriate as with all cognate minor course sequences as defined by the timing of the registrar changes.
