What is Different About the Digital Media MinorThe classes within the digital media minor are semester-based, rather than in the 10-week format of other courses in the online bachelor of general studies (BGS) program. This means you will start courses at the beginning of the fall, spring, or summer semesters and continue through the end of the 16-week spring and fall terms or five-week summer terms—just as our main-campus students do.
In fact, you will be taking these online courses with students studying on our main campus. This is different than other BGS courses where you work independently and do not have group project requirements.
Another difference is that the courses are not self-paced, as your other BGS courses are. Assignments and class participation requirements are due weekly.
If you are not a resident of Indiana, tuition costs are also different for these online courses vs. the Independent Learning courses making up the majority of the BGS program.
