Looking for a way to take your art, design, or computer science background to the next level?
Vancouver”s Master of Digital Media (MDM) program is a one-year plus internship graduate degree that focuses on real-world projects, industry connections, leadership experience and collaboration. The program builds on your existing skillset and takes it to management level.

Back in 2006, a gap was identified in the digital media industry. While students were graduating from university with technical skills, they were missing the ‘soft skills’ necessary to work and lead in a team-oriented digital media environment.
The Master of Digital Media program fills this gap in the industry. Students from a variety of backgrounds, such as engineering, design, fine arts and animation, come together and learn skills crucial to the digital media industry—including rapid prototyping, project management, client relations and project-planning methodologies. Students spend one year on coursework (70 percent of which is project-based) and then do best online casino a four-month internship.
“The students learn how to manage creativity—their own creativity, creativity in a team, and the creative process when working with real-world clients,” says Dr. Richard Smith, Professor and Director of the MDM program.
The MDM program has over 160 graduates working in countries all throughout the world as producers, managers, art directors and entrepreneurs. Graduates work at organizations such as Electronic Arts, Google, Microsoft and Wooga. Many graduates have also started their own digital media startup companies with studios at the Centre for Digital Media or elsewhere in Vancouver.
