The minor consists of a minimum of 20 credits (5 full courses or the equivalent) and a learning portfolio.
Note: Students must earn minimum grades of C- or P for all courses that apply toward the minor.
The Arts and Creative Technologies (ACT) minor trains students to be active contributors to global conversations about the expressive potential of technology, and makes tangible and visible the unique cross-divisional opportunities for study in the arts, media, and technology at Oberlin. It provides a hands-on understanding of sound, video, and interactive media software and hardware tools and a context for their deployment. The minor draws on well-established interdisciplinary connections between the core departments and programs of TIMARA, Computer Science , Cinema Studies , and Studio Art .
