Information Design Minor
The study of Information Design provides students with broad knowledge and hands-on experience in the ways that writing intersects with visual media and information technologies in contemporary society.
Bringing together theory and practice, a minor in Information Design provides both the critical tools for understanding digital media and visual cultures from a liberal arts perspective, as well as the verbal/visual skills to create a variety of documents including Web sites, informational graphics, brochures, visual narratives, presentations, and graphic interfaces.
Information Design is invaluable for work in fields as diverse as journalism, education, business, art, statistics, film, technical and professional writing, Web design, the social sciences, creative writing, engineering, and English studies.
Information Design traces the many new forms that writing takes in twenty-first-century cultural practice.
