The Multimedia, Photography and Design graduate degree is for students who want to customize their education around their career objectives, such as photography, video production, multimedia, visual editing, graphic design, immersive design, motion graphic design, etc. by allowing students to take a foundational and advanced course in their area of choice. Students then select electives to either deepen that area of expertise or broaden their knowledge base and skill sets into complementary areas. In an effort to work with publications, corporations and non-profit organizations on real-world projects, the program encourages such collaboration among students, faculty and professionals. To augment the emphasis on visual communication, the program also includes communications research, media law, visual communications theory and current business practices. The course work for this program may be completed in 12 or 18 months.
This 37 credit program leads to a Master of Science (M.S.) in Multimedia, Photography and Design.
