New careers call for people who can resolve complex problems across previously unrelated disciplines. Through team-based projects, the Masters degree in Digital Media at Northeastern University allows students to gain valuable baseline knowledge in a variety of core competencies while offering the option of specialized studies in one digital media area. The Digital Media program offers courses in sound, moving image, interaction development, and narrative structure – critical elements in producing and developing rich content and experiences.
Students are admitted to the Masters program in cohorts, enabling them to develop a network of relationships that mirror those in real-world functional teams. These cohorts not only encourage the creation of ambitious and complex work, but also offer opportunities in team process and leadership, preparing future leaders in the creative fields.
