ETBD Major - Digital Concentration

The BA in Emerging Technology in Business and Design (ET) is an interdisciplinary degree designed to provide depth in theory and practice of interactive and digital design, development, business, innovation, and digital disruption. 

Grounded in Miami University’s tradition of liberal education, the BA in Emerging Technology provides a foundation in the liberal arts of the 21st century

  • digital and social media marketing;
  • multimedia authorship and theory;
  • web and app development;
  • virtual/augmented reality;
  • game design and development;
  • user experience (UX) design; 
  • the study of digital startups;

and more. 

Complementing this foundation are a set of electives (providing depth in a selected area of interest) and a series of courses focused up working with external partners and building a portfolio.

The BA in Emerging Technology has four foundational pillars: 

  • Design
  • Business
  • Technology
  • Collaboration and Making

These foundations provide the context for a set of four or more electives chosen to develop expertise and depth in one or more areas of ET, all of which is tied together in the capstone client-based consulting agency within ET as well as the ET Thesis class.
