Digital Media

The Master of Professional Studies in Digital Media is built around “cohorts.” A cohort is a unique program format, in which students complete their degree within one cohesive student population. Cohorts build a sense of community among students, encourage networking, and create strong relationships that extend beyond the academic experience.

A full-time student (carrying 8 quarter hours per session) joins the program in one of two cohorts, which begin in the fall (September) or winter (January). Not all specializations are offered in both cohorts. Students who declare a 3-D Animation or Game Design specialization begin in the fall. Students who declare a Digital Photography or Digital Video specialization begin in the winter. All other students, including those who do not plan to specialize in one area, can begin in either the fall or the winter.

Prospective full-time students can apply for the Master of Professional Studies in Digital Media at any time during the year. When applying, applicants must select a specialization. If accepted, the applicant will be admitted into the next open cohort (fall or winter) for their specialization. Students can begin their studies in the spring and summer sessions, but they will not be part of a cohort. The Digital Media program cannot guarantee that required courses will be available to non-cohort students in every academic session.

Part-time students do not join a cohort, although they are encouraged to begin their studies in the fall or winter to connect with other new students.
