This Master's degree concentration is designed for students who wish to gain understanding of emerging media, developing content, and strategically managing emerging media to further personal career goals and those of their employers. The degree is designed to accommodate students from a variety of different undergraduate backgrounds (e.g., business, communication, computer science, engineering, public health, etc.). For students with necessary prerequisite skills (listed below), the program can be completed in one year (three semesters, 33 semester hours). For those needing to take the prerequisite course, the program can be completed in 16 months (four semesters, 36 semester hours).

Prerequisite Skills: Prior to enrollment, all admitted students are required to complete a competency test (unless they elect to take the NMIX 6110 course).
