New Media Programs in the United States

Edgar Huang, Ph.D.

School of Informatics and Computing, Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis

This list of new media schools/departments/programs/concentrations in the United States that grant at least a bachelor's degree was created in February 2008 by Dr. Edgar Huang for research purposes. Some programs may have evolved or vanished, but the original URLs of those programs have been kept, which are no longer functioning. Over the years, Dr. Huang has been contacted to add new programs. Therefore, this list is still being updated. This is the most comprehensive list of its kind on the Internet though some of such schools/departments/programs/concentrations may still be unintentionally left out. If you know any of such programs that should be included here, please e-mail Dr. Huang at Here is Dr. Huang's study Teaching Button-Pushing versusTeaching Thinking based on this list.
