A Transformative Academic Approach

While the Interactive Media program is distinctive in many ways – from its intensive, accelerated timeline to the close, personalized professional mentoring it provides – three experiences stand out. The program’s signature experiences include the technical bootcamp (ensuring each student has the skills to succeed, regardless of their academic background), a professional study away project for the public good (where small teams develop their professional skills by completing an interactive media project for an authentic client), and a capstone project (a significant interactive project designed and produced by each student). Supported by these transformative experiences, students develop a rich portfolio and deep professional knowledge before they even graduate.

Interactive Media Bootcamp

Gain the Skills To Succeed

The Interactive Media program begins with a two-week bootcamp designed to teach principles, tools, and technologies needed for success in the program.

Study Away

Become a World-Changer

All interactive media students take the Project for the Public Good course in January, which includes a study away experience. Working in small teams, students use new design and production skills to support a non-profit organization.
