Next Enrollment Term: Fall 2026

The Interactive Media graduate program is currently conducting a market research study examining new concentrations, curriculum revisions, and new methods of delivery to meet and support the needs of today’s students. The program expects to enroll its next cohort in fall 2026, with applications opening Sept. 1, 2025. If you would like to stay informed about this graduate program’s development, please join our mailing list.

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.
