The Digital Narrative and Interactive Design (DNID) major harnesses the narrative, world-building, and media studies strengths of the English department and the coding, software development, and human computer interface strengths of the School of Computing and Information. Students will learn how to build interactive narrative systems through games, literature, virtual reality environments, and other media experiences in a variety of fields.

The major was designed with three tracks from which students will choose in order to deepen their specific training in one of three crucial areas: Online Media, Game Design, or Critical Making. All three are positioned to empower students to lead or collaborate on design teams, with variety in coursework allowing students to hone the certification experience to their exact career interests and aims.
