The transformative influences of digital communications are widely recognized in a variety of professions that students will eventually pursue — whether business, publishing, the arts, journalism, education, the government, or academia. The goal of this minor is to educate students in the history, theory and practice of new media. Courses in English, Sociology, Art and Art History, and Computer Science will help prepare students to participate in, utilize, critically engage with and assess, and perhaps most importantly, contribute creatively to the new global information networks, resources, and communications of the digital age.

This Minor may be completed in conjunction with any degree in the College of Arts & Science.

The Minor average in Digital Culture and New Media will be calculated using the grades earned in all courses eligible to be included in the Minor program requirements. Students must complete at least two-thirds of the program requirements (rounded to the nearest highest multiple of 3 credit units) using courses offered by the University of Saskatchewan to meet the Residency requirement.
