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.
As an EMDD student, you’ll add skills in design thinking, cross-platform storytelling and user experience design that can help you advance in your career or forge a new path. As a professional, you’ll find our low-residency program offers the flexibility and collaborative environment you need to complete a master’s degree or certificate while working a full-time job.
