Minor in Virtual Reality & Immersive Media

About the Minor

The design and production of Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), 360° Video and other Immersive Media formats requires a unique skill set—creative thinking, understanding of design, aesthetic sensitivity, and story telling are balanced with technical knowledge in areas such as 3D Computer Graphics, Animation, Visual Effects, interactivity, digital camera and image processing technologies. Additionally, critical thinking, the ability to collaborate effectively and communication skills are also integral to success in this rapidly expanding industry.

Drexel’s Minor in Virtual Reality & Immersive Media provides a foundation in the principles, techniques and tools used in the design and production of virtual reality, augmented reality (VR/AR) and other forms of Immersive Media, with the opportunity for individualized tailoring according to the student's interests.
