The MS in Interactive Media and Communications prepares you to design, produce and manage a range of content and to become a strong creative thinker and a leader in visual design and storytelling. You’ll learn principles of human-centered design to better understand and connect with a wide range of audiences and apply design strategies to solve creative, technical and business-related challenges. Moreover, you’ll be able to craft highly effective and ethical cross-media communication strategies.
The program provides deep exploration into all aspects of media, including web design and production; social media analytics; digital audio, video and graphics; and UX and UI. A flexible elective structure allows you to customize your degree to coincide with your career goals.
