Program Description:

As today’s successful companies heavily rely on strong visual representation to deliver their message to the public, the ability to direct and shape those visuals is an increasingly vital asset to employers everywhere. Designers are capable of reshaping the world’s view through innovative artistry.

Within this context, Full Sail University’s Media Design Master of Fine Arts Online Degree Program provides an opportunity for students to further tap in to their creativity, knowledge and skills in design. The curriculum explores the tactical and collaborative planning behind design. It provides an advanced look at the numerous opportunities found within the field of multi-channel marketing by taking students through in-depth research projects, advanced academic studies, and a Thesis Project that will prepare them to implement their own cohesive and comprehensive multi-platform media campaign.

Along with studying design theory concepts such as brand development, design ethics, and design strategies and motivation, a significant part of your studies will find you engaged in the actual production workflow of the design industry. You’ll be involved in the creation of a variety of deliverables for many different platforms and media, while being equipped with the branding and strategy tools needed to handle the types of key projects that professionals encounter within the industry.

It all culminates with the presentation of your Design Solution thesis project. This is comprised of all that you’ve learned throughout the program and addresses a complex media design challenge, along with your proposed solution. The assets that you create for this project will also serve as your working template that you can use to pitch ideas and concepts to future employers throughout the course of your career as a creative professional.
