Overview

With the evolution of media entities like Time Warner, NBC Universal and Condé Nast, it’s increasingly clear that the world is not just consuming media -- we’re experiencing it. The media communication industry is capitalizing on the potential of digital media, and to do that, they are seeing a growing need for design, creative, and UX professionals that have the skills to take them into the future--keeping them competitive, relevant, and innovative.

Whether you are a current or aspiring UI/UX Designer, Graphic Designer, or Multimedia artist, this program will equip you with the critical knowledge, as well as the technical and creative skills for designing interactive digital experiences that push boundaries and drive media forward. You will leave this program with programming skills and media frameworks that will elevate your career. By the end of your coursework, you will also have a professional portfolio of work that exemplifies your technical and creative skills, which you can present to peers, graduate school programs, and potential employers.

Whether you take these design and digital media skills directly to the workforce, or use them to apply to NYU’s exceptional online Master’s Degree in Integrated Digital Media, this program prepares you to successfully engage in a fast-growing and professionally rewarding creative field and community.
