The master's degree program is designed to allow students to further specialize with the intent of preparing them for a career in ways the undergraduate program is too broad to do. A lower level degree in a related field is usually required as a prerequisite, however.

So just what is an MA in Media and Design? This specific master’s degree focus is the primary field for advertising and effective marketing. Students usually learn the technical side of creative design, including common computer tools for the trade used to create appealing images and themes for a company’s target audience. In addition to technical education, there might be a focus on how marketing content should appear to be as effective as possible. Essentially, taking a master's in this area can prepare you to design media on a professional level.

The biggest benefit that students usually enjoy is the chance to foster their natural creative abilities and apply them to a career. Many have the visual ability, but lack the industry knowledge required to actually start working.

The costs for taking an MA in Media and Design vary greatly. Many factors, including the country, university, and the specific program you choose to study in, will play a role in determining the expenses. It is important to do your research and reach out to specific schools before settling on any program.

A degree in this field is traditionally used to find work in a marketing firm or advertising company. Besides finding a company that specializes in marketing, you could also work for the marketing department in an independent business. Jobs in this area would include web development, social marketers, and branding managers, as well as more general positions in advertising. Lastly, it is possible to work independently as a freelance agent or as a consultant.

If you are a creative individual looking to make a career out of your passion, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
