Degree Summary: The Master of Arts in Digital Arts & Sciences (DAS) degree seeks to allow students from diverse academic backgrounds the opportunity to develop fluency in the technologies, design practices and collaborative interdisciplinary teamwork increasingly required by the media, communications and entertainment industries. Graduates holding the MA in DAS degree would typically seek employment in the creative services sector, applying digital techniques and technologies in a variety of professions. Opportunities range from traditional cinema to interactive games; from broadcast media to online international networks to emergent industries.
The current growth of creative multi-media technologies in very aspect of entertainment, education, commerce, communication, science and engineering attests to the power and importance of these technologies. In bridging the gap between creativity and precision, form and function the MA in DAS provides a synergistic environment that will provide the educational and hands-on training with the technical, formal and conceptual skills necessary to work in the digital media industries. Multimedia and creative technologies are a global growth market, with entertainment technologies, interaction design, virtual reality and evolving social networks emerging as a driving force to reorganize our information and its infrastructure. From all indications, the future demand for graduates from this program will be very strong.
