Multimedia Studies (BS)

Consider a multimedia profession
Multimedia artists work in all modes of communication – web, social media, print, television, radio – to impart messages relating to all aspects of culture, commerce, and business.

Learn with Minot State
Our Multimedia Studies degree is offered through the Minot State Art Department in tandem with the Communication Arts Department. It is an extensive media experience that equips you to fluently author, design, and manage content in an array of media. This interdisciplinary degree includes courses from five major study areas: art (graphic design and photography), communication (broadcasting), English, music, and business.

Studying art at Minot State is a meaningful and rewarding creative experience, during which you will build confidence with technique, concept, design, and aesthetic judgement. Our Art Department is small enough to foster strong student/instructor mentoring and large enough to attract quality professors who are engaged in outstanding research. Members of the art faculty are dedicated educators who have achieved personal success in the arts and work for the success of their students.
