To earn the master's degree, students must complete 36 credits with a minimum 3.0 GPA. Students complete their program with a master's project or thesis, which counts for three credits toward the 36 credits required to graduate. The project is a professional work of interactive multimedia. The thesis is a work of research that advances knowledge in the field.
Unique to the program is the Project Planning course. The content covered in this course is critical to becoming a media producer and serves as a prequel to the master's project. In the Project Planning course, students create a comprehensive master's capstone plan.
Students also have the opportunity to enroll in an optional three-credit internship. Graduate students have served as interns at local, national and global media companies and Web development firms. Also available is an optional three-credit independent study for students who want to do advanced work or research in a particular topic.
