A Master of Arts (MA) degree is a post-graduate degree designed for individuals who wish to go a step further with their education. They typically study topics such as social sciences, communication, or fine arts. One such degree is the MA in Digital Media.

What is an MA in Digital Media? Today, the demand for digital media experts is growing at an exponential rate, and to meet that demand, many colleges and universities have begun offering master’s degrees in that area. Such a degree may have a particular focus, like entertainment, education or social media, whereas others may be more generalized. Typically, coursework will include instruction in a number of business-oriented disciplines that relate to the digital field including Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Management, Digital Media Law, Information Systems and Digital Technologies.

Among the benefits of this degree is the availability of good paying, professional positions in a wide variety of industries. For instance, television, film, online education, video game development and other high tech industries are just a few. In addition, freelance opportunities abound. Another benefit is that graduates often have the opportunity to work abroad, expanding the digital revolution into countries around the globe. Those with the desire may be able to continue their studies to earn doctorates in digital media, further expanding their opportunities.

This degree is offered by many institutions, and the cost for completion varies depending on numerous factors such as geographic location and method of delivery, as well as whether the school is a public or private institution. Regardless of cost, most programs can be completed within two years. There are also different format options available, including the traditional full-time model, as well as part-time, evening, and online classes.

Graduates with an advanced digital media degree may pursue many potential career paths. Possibilities include Entertainment Manager, Event Production Manager, Digital Marketing Manager, Film and/or Music Producer, Freelance Consultant, and Information System Manager. However, this degree is applicable to an increasing number of positions, with new ones being developed continually.

Vision

The vision of the course is to encourage potential researchers and practitioners to understand how technologies facilitate the creation, circulation, and reception of knowledge and information, and to explore and critique these concepts through modes of making

As the scope of our design practices increasingly encompasses the digital, it is instructive and intellectually responsible to consider more deeply how technology has always shaped our understandings of the world. The discipline of the digital humanities explores how the questions posed in humanities scholarship are transformed and extended by the digital – both by means of tools and epistemologies. This unique course seeks to enrich the scope of both design and the humanities by using critical methodologies and approaches to reciprocally reflect upon the other. By doing so, students will be able to adapt the modes of inquiry and methodologies embedded in humanities thinking to create both more contextually relevant and responsive technological applications and material objects....
