MA Curriculum

Master of Arts in Digital Arts

The Master of Arts (MA) in Digital Arts program focuses on rapidly developing the most in-demand technological skills among its creative students. Students take coursework in management, web development, and creative electives to create a portfolio of work that will attract future employers from a wide variety of fields. Students work closely with faculty familiar with both technology and business while building a diverse network across disciplines. Our students are forming the technology culture of the future: while building connections with other creative professionals throughout the Digital Arts graduate programs, they also have the opportunity to work with students and faculty in the Management, Cultural Sustainability, Environmental Studies, and Nonfiction programs.
