About UConn Digital Media & Design (DMD)

UConn’s Digital Media & Design program provides an innovative and transformative experience that employs the use of industry-leading concepts and technologies to educate students, creating future leaders in design, communications, business, entertainment, and other related industries. Students can study animation, gaming, web design & development, digital media strategies for business, film / video production, and the digital humanities.

Under the guidance of faculty who are all experienced professionals and practitioners, students have access to state-of-the-art facilities and engage with leading-edge hardware and software to both produce and measure digital media content for both today – and tomorrow’s – brave new digital world. Our commitment to experiential learning in the classroom prepares our students to respond to real-world challenges that will distinguish them as thinkers, creators and innovators in the digital space. The success for this approach to learning is demonstrated through our recent alumni who have a remarkably high (75-85%) employment rate within their field shortly after graduation.
