Digital Media Design

Eastern's New Media Studies concentration in Digital Media Design offers students an innovative program of study that is structured in three tiers. All majors take a core set of classes covering the range of new media theories and practices. Then, students select courses from among five Interdisciplinary Exploration categories, clustered around common themes and spanning several fields of study.

All courses incorporate conceptual and hands-on learning to build students’ critical thinking, analytical and problem-solving skills, and promote development of competencies in digital and print media practices. Particular emphasis is placed on the dynamic, interactive, immersive, and creative applications of digital media forms in order to prepare students to enter careers and meet the challenges of ever-evolving developments in media technologies. Students are encouraged to take internships, and participate in dynamic, cross-disciplinary, creative projects at every level of their academic development.
