The Master of Science in Emergent Media is a 30 credit one-year program offered in Shanghai, China culminating with a 9-week summer residency at Champlain College's Burlington, VT campus. This program is designed to appeal to graduate students who wish to have careers producing and managing the collaborative process of the next generation of expressive media content such as mobile apps, e-books and magazines, and games.
A Collaborative Learning Environment
The program takes place in studio-based classrooms that are a pre-requisite for learning to produce electronic media. The Shanghai-based studio will be linked with the Emergent Media Center on Champlain College's Burlington, VT campus, providing an opportunity for international collaboration and project development.
The M.S. in Emergent Media program focuses on the collaborative production processes inherent in the creation of networked media. The program includes courses where students in Shanghai will work on teams with the Master of Fine Arts in Emergent Media students in Burlington, VT utilizing state-of-art online tools for collaboration and design tools. These experiences will provide both sets of students with an opportunity to form relationships, seek solutions, create production processes, and achieve goals, all the while gaining a new global perspective.
