The School of Communications' master of science degree program in interactive media focuses on the principles and practices of creating content for distribution through the Internet, portable media devices and related digital platforms.

The degree program's mission is to provide a master's level education where students prepare to become leaders, producers, and managers for national and global organizations in the field in interactive media.

In addition to course work that explores professional production techniques and tools, students also engage in rigorous academic study of communications theory and innovative thinkers whose work is indispensable to understanding the shift from legacy media to online.
