This interdisciplinary program combines the use of text, images, video, sound, graphics, and interactivity to communicate through a variety of ever-changing digital platforms such as social media, apps, and games. The curriculum includes content creation, strategy, measurement, and management in a blend of theoretical and hands-on approaches. The curriculum culminates with a senior capstone course and an internship in a professional setting.
