This information session will allow you to explore whether a master's in emerging media design and development (low residency program) is a good fit for you and your overall career plan.

Solving the information problem is a key concern for any business or organization that relies on multimedia storytelling across digital platforms to communicate with an audience.

Traditional media outlets, hospitals, museums, corporations, and educational institutions are all a part of the digital media evolution. Solving the information problem is equal parts interaction design, digital storytelling, audience understanding, digital product development, and interdisciplinary collaboration.

The master’s degree in emerging media design and development (EMDD) is a holistic learning environment, challenging traditional structures of the classroom. Through a mix of traditional course work and practical lab experiences, we promote creative problem solving and educate an advanced, graduate workforce that can apply emerging media practices to real-world strategic communication design problems.

The Ball State Center for Academic and Economic Innovation at Launch Fishers is the central hub for our low-residency master of arts in Emerging Media Design + Development (EMDD). If you’re a working professional interested in advancing your digital media and project management skills without disrupting your career, EMDD could be the right degree for you.

What makes our program distinct is that it is a hands-on, practical experience built around research and application. Our low-residency program allows you to complete the majority of the coursework online, with a once-per-semester, five-day workshop that will take place at the Launch Fishers facility in Fishers, Indiana.

Register now for an online interactive information session where you will learn how our low-residency program is structured, what types of hands-on projects you’ll work on in our program, and how to apply to graduate school. You will also be able to submit your questions to a live panel during the Q&A segment of the webinar.

By participating in this session, we will waive half of the cost of the $60 Ball State University Graduate School application fee. After the session you will receive more details about this offer.
