Immersive media are part of an emerging art and communication practice that synthesizes multiple creative disciplines. These media seek to achieve the psychological state of immersion by redefining a user’s perception of reality by replacing it or making it hybrid with digital content. Industries from medicine and engineering to gaming and cultural heritage are embracing immersive media platforms such as the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, HoloLens, and MagicLeap. Completing the minor will prepare you to leverage a critical liberal arts perspective with the latest affordances of augmented mixed and virtual reality to build compelling, immersive experiences.
