Program Description:

In the rapidly converging world of communications, Elon University's M.A. in Interactive Media program prepares students to think strategically across media platforms. Delivered on campus in a state-of-the-art environment, this intensive 10-month, full-time graduate program includes hands-on production and theoretical courses coupled with a project for the public good, where students travel internationally each January. Students in the program use the latest coding, graphic design and production techniques – including JavaScript for data visualization and interactivity. Through hands-on experiences in classes and with real-world clients, students discover the creation, strategies and application of interactivity through content development and marketing, UX design, responsive web design, prototyping, usability testing, analytics, social media, app development, and human computer interaction.


The Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Media accredits the School of Communications and the M.A. in Interactive Media.
