Application Process

To become a Digital Technology & Culture major you must complete the certification process and be approved by the DTC faculty.

  • To apply for certification a student must:
    1. Have completed 24 credit hours;
    2. Earned a minimum 2.2 GPA; and
    3. Submit a DTC certification application as outlined below.
  • Application materials must be submitted online here.
  • If, for some reason, you can not upload your digital project files, they must be submitted on a flash drive to Professor Rebecca Goodrich in Avery 391. Put the drive in an appropriately sized envelope and clearly label it as “DTC Certification” with your full name.
  • After all of your application materials have been received, they will be reviewed, and you will receive a response within three weeks.

The DTC Certification application must include:

  1. One completed sample digital project that demonstrates introductory knowledge of multimedia creation (examples include: a short video, animation piece, website, logo design, posters, etc)
  2. A completed online certification form (see above link)
  3. Written statement of purpose (500-700 words) that includes: 
    • A description of how the sample digital project was conceived and created including a discussion of the ideas and design choices involved; and
    • An introductory statement that addresses issues of diversity and inclusion in digital space. This statement could relate to the sample digital project you submitted for your application, your professional or personal life goals, and/or what you’ve learned so far in your coursework in DTC.

Certification applications must be submitted online and will be reviewed by a DTC committee. Transfer students with 55+ hours should complete the certification requirements within two semesters.

All students should certify before earning 90 credit hours.
