The major utilizes Linfield’s traditional curriculum in the liberal arts to allow students to pursue inquiries in electronic arts. It allows students to investigate aspects of web design, computer graphics, or any combination of arts and technology. By combining the resources of the Art and Visual Culture, Mass Communication, Computer Science, and Music Departments, Electronic Arts creates a curriculum that uses aspects of each discipline as it relates to arts and technology.
