Albright’s Digital Studio Art program integrates advanced creative concepts and techniques essential to both digital media and the visual arts.

Students will develop a comprehensive understanding in media theories that will assist them in creating integrated products in digital artworks and digital environments. They will put those theories into practice through specialized courses in writing, digital and visually artistic production, research, illustration and design, and will have opportunities to apply their knowledge through work with campus media and internships with regional cultural and educational institutions, publications and agencies.
