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 award of diplomas. All students, whether in the on-campus or low-residency option, complete the bootcamp and study away experiences together in an in-person context. Other classes, including the spring semester capstone, may be offered in-person, remote, or hybrid. Low-residency students will typically complete all fall and spring semester classes remotely. All students collaborate closely throughout the year in the hybrid Pro-seminar classes and workshops.
