La Salle University’s digital arts curriculum provides you with the technical tools and conceptual foundation to make effective and engaging visual designs. Students master specialized skills with a wide variety of classes, including animation, audio production, color theory, visual communication, and web design. Developing a strong foundation in visual design as well as coding skills to create versatile interactive applications, students gain the tools to build a digital portfolio appropriate to your professional goals and aspirations.
During seminars in Digital Arts, students can interact with working designers and learn more about the industry. Small class sizes allow for one-on-one attention and students are encouraged to pursue independent study courses in advanced technology that interests them such as virtual/augmented reality and game design. Our classrooms are equipped with industry standard computers and software, and students have the ability to work with emerging technologies such as VR, 3D printing, and drone videography.
Students use industry-standard 3D modeling and animation software to create a variety of objects, characters, and environments which can be output as animations, 360° immersive experiences, and 3D prints.
This course is an introduction to color models, color interaction, and the human perception of color. Students explore the theory and practice of digital color through several image-making projects, including illustrations, logo design, and games.
Students learn foundational skills of digital image making and software. They incorporate artwork from our very own La Salle University Art Museum as they create collage illustrations and intricate vector designs
All Digital Arts classes are taught by faculty who are also working professionals. They bring their real-world experience as artists and designers into the classroom, giving students a direct connection to industry.
Our goal is to immerse you in a community that will equip you for a successful career as a creative professional.
