The Interactive Media program’s intensive, full-time schedule prepares students to work in professional media, technology and design roles in 10 months – less than half the time of a typical MA program. This means students are back in the workforce more quickly, with the skills and portfolio to pursue cutting-edge job opportunities. Our fast-paced and highly engaged learning environment is designed for those with excellent time management skills, the ability to work hard, and a desire to collaborate closely with peers. The support among students, faculty and staff colleagues helps to maintain motivation and momentum. The time will fly by, but students always find Interactive Media a professionally and personally transformative experience.

The Interactive Media academic calendar runs from August through May, beginning with an intensive two-week “bootcamp” and concluding with the awarding of diplomas.
