Good News for the Informatics Doctorate in Art and Culture

eDream is helping to facilitate the approval of a doctorate that will concentrate on digital arts media, which will be administered by the Illinois Informatics Institute and granted by the Graduate College.  The degree, which is bundled with other areas of informatics, was approved by the Education Policy Committee of the Faculty Senate on September 14th and by the entire Faculty Senate on October 5th. The degree will now go to the Illinois Board of Higher Education for an examination process that involves vetting by a panel of external experts.
