Time: 12-1 p.m. (Eastern time)

Location:  on campus

Ball State University's master of arts degree in Emerging Media Design & Development (EMDD) is an interdisciplinary program that brings together students from different backgrounds to use human-centered design and storytelling to address challenges facing organizations and businesses. At this information session, students will learn how an MA in EMDD can complement their existing skills to open up additional career opportunities.

At the Center for EMDD, students from both creative backgrounds (English, journalism, theater, graphic design, photography, TV/film) and technology backgrounds (programmers, Web designers, animators) collaborate in teams to solve big programs using technology, digital media and storytelling.

What makes the EMDD program distinct is it's a hands-on, practical experience built around research and application. EMDD students spend their first year in course work and the second year working in our two labs. In the Creative Projects lab, students will work with community partners to create stories, which may include interactive installation projects, augmented reality experiences or social media campaigns (just to name a few of our projects). In the Applied Research Lab, students will perform usability and user experience research to better understand how innovations in digital storytelling engage audiences.

Join us for lunch and learn how a graduate degree in EMDD can prepare you for a 21st century career.

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

We hope to see you soon!
