Master of Arts in Digital Arts

Goucher’s flexible MA in Digital Arts is designed for students who want to develop a broad base of creative and organizational skills in interactive design, multimedia production, creative technology, and entrepreneurship.

You will master the fundamental principles of interactive and networked media while taking electives that develop your skills in graphic and user interface design, animation, audio and video production, and game design and development. Management courses will prepare you to take control of your career, find an audience for your work, and bring a unique skill set to collaborations. You will graduate with a portfolio of work to support your professional ambitions, and prepared with the critical thinking skills to find your place in an ever-shifting economy, or blaze a path for others to follow.
