The Research Option offers students majoring in Interactive Computing the opportunity for a substantial, in-depth research experience. Students are strongly encouraged at the end of their experience to work with their faculty mentor to develop a journal publication or conference presentation on the research in addition to the actual thesis.

Computational Media is a cutting-edge undergraduate major focusing on new and interactive media. Course work is split between classes offered by the School of Interactive Computing and the School of Literature, Communication, and Culture.
