BS Four-Year Degree Plan: Digital Design Option

The four-year degree plan was created to demonstrate that it is possible for a student to graduate in four years. The four-year degree option can be completed in eight regular semesters (with one summer internship). Students are encouraged to complete their programs within four years.

The four-year degree plan assumes the following:

  • No remedial coursework is required
  • The student does not fail any classes and earns a grade of "C" or better in all DFM course work
  • The student does not change minors
  • The student is willing to take an internship during one summer

Internship
