MIS Minor replaced by Business Administration Minor (8/10)

Those of you looking to earn the Digital Information Management option of the DTC please note: the Management Information Systems minor is being phased out and replaced by a Business Administration Minor. If you were already a MIS Minor, you are grandfathered in and will finish under the old model. For more information, visit the requirements page (look under Concentration 3).


NEW DTC Advising Policy

Given recent structural changes, all DTC advising will now be done by our Academic Advisor, Leisa McCormick. Your previous advisors will serve as mentors, but cannot lift your advising hold. Contact Leisa ASAP to make an appointment


Capping Major

Because of budget constraints at WSU, the Digital Technology and Culture major at the Pullman campus has been temporarily capped at 100 students. Given current staffing and facility constraints, this is the maximum number of students DTC can accommodate and still provide a high-quality major. This cap will be lifted when faculty and facility constraints are eased. Learn more about becoming a major.
