Destiny Zukevich started this petition to New Mexico state University

At NMSU's Creative Media Institute, we go through the program to receive our BCM, or Bachelors of Creative Media . This is not a common naming practice, as nearly all animation and film degrees are listed as a Bachelor's of Art or Bachelor's of Science. This has become problematic for me as a graduating senior applying for jobs, and having to lie on my degree type when BCM isn't listed as an option. When prospective employers are met with this unusual naming scheme, they may question it's authenticity. It is so rare, in fact, that with a google search the only college outside of New Mexico State University that uses a BCM is the University of Hawai'i–West O'ahu. Many of our students at CMI are unaware of this issue, though when it's brought to their attention are unhappy and confused. We are asking that NMSU and the CMI department consider changing our bachelor type to something more universal to help our chances of success in the industry and to make our lives easier.
