Graduate

The Digital Media & Design department offers two graduate degree programs: Master of Arts (M.A.) and a Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.).

Master of Arts

The Master of Arts (M.A.) degree in Digital Media & Design is intended to provide educational and career-training opportunities for students interested in a specific area of practice within the Digital Media space. The program is structured to develop a focused understanding of digital media aesthetics, practice, procedure, technology, design, implementation and/or research techniques within a targeted commercial or creative area including: Digital Arts, Business, Digital Humanities/Social Sciences, STEM, and Entertainment.

The program of study for the M.A. requires one year of full-time resident graduate study. A minimum of 30 graduate level credits will be required to graduate, as well as a final exam/project that demonstrates personal strengths and vision within the candidate’s selected area of study.

Master of Fine Arts

The Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) is a terminal degree in Digital Media & Design intended to provide educational and career-training within an experiential learning environment in which students engage in collaborative projects with external corporate and creative companies to develop a specific area of practice within the Digital Media space. The program is structured to develop an in-depth understanding of digital media aesthetics, technology, practice, procedure, design, implementation and/or research techniques employed in the areas of Digital Art, Business, Digital Humanities/Social Sciences, STEM, and Entertainment.

The Master of Fine Arts in Digital Media & Design will require a two-year commitment of full-time resident graduate study. A minimum of 48 graduate level credits will be required to graduate and the program of study will follow the Graduate School’s “Plan B” (no thesis) program. Each M.F.A. candidate will work with their faculty advisor to develop an M.F.A. capstone or final project demonstrating their personal strengths and vision within their specific area of study.
