- Games and Interactive Media program
The Digital Media M.A. builds on undergraduate knowledge to develop a mature set of conceptual, theoretical, design and technical skills needed to communicate stories and messages in a single discipline or in an interdisciplinary environment.
The program is based on an apprenticeship model. Students explore new media under the guidance of a faculty member and collaborate with this faculty member in creative and research projects that foster a unique and innovative contribution by the student.
Our M.A. students may have undergraduate degrees from any discipline. Admission is based on your undergraduate transcript, your Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores, a portfolio showcasing your accomplishments in any domain, and an admission essay. Portfolios might include works of art, software, or games you have designed, written articles and proposals or projects you have created.
The program has a non-thesis and a thesis option, both requiring 36 credit hours. Most students pursue the non-thesis option. The thesis option requires acceptance by a faculty advisor and completion of a six-hour thesis project. Students may be admitted on either a full-time or part-time basis. Full-time students normally complete the curriculum in two years.
