The University of Maryland is exploring the possibility of creating a new major on immersive media design that would combine studio art, digital storytelling, design, and computing, using virtual reality (VR) / augmented reality (AR) technology.
During its first phase, the major will include elements of game design, augmented and virtual reality, physical computing, and digital fabrication. The curricula would also provide a foundation for an artistic practice that would incorporate AR/VR technology. This new major would prepare students for a variety of AR-VR focused careers including jobs in the entertainment and computer games industry, education, healthcare, defense, and consumer outreach.
