Multimedia Authoring Minor

Coordinator: Senior Lecturer Kleckner

The Multimedia Authoring minor at Elon provides an interdisciplinary approach to the development of successful and persuasive digital content for all disciplines. Students will have the opportunity to develop communication, design, and technology skills in the context of disciplinary content. These skills are beneficial for graduates in a variety of fields, but are especially relevant in publishing (both new electronic media, as well as traditional media), business marketing, and business consulting.

The multimedia minor will allow students to integrate the study of digital design and writing with a solid technical foundation through core courses in English and Information Science. Students will learn document design and content from the English department where they will address the theory and challenge of developing multimedia with rich technical writing. These design skills will be complemented with courses in Information Science focusing on Web-based databases and Web servers.

In the final Multimedia Authoring Studio course, students will address a variety of multimedia challenges as well as become production designers for Visions magazine, a peer-reviewed publication written by and for Elon students.
