If you’re not familiar with the term, “digital media” refers to content that is stored in digital formats and (usually) distributed online. It can take the form of apps, video games, virtual reality programs and even immersive interactive learning experiences.
As we approach 2020, it’s clear that almost all industries, even those that aren’t typically associated with technology —such as health, government and education, have made the shift from traditional to digital media. As a result, there are unprecedented career opportunities for people with digital media training, especially in Vancouver.
That’s because B.C. has become a hub for digital media and technology, housing 8,000 Technology and Digital Entertainment companies in addition to some of the world’s top video game clusters and animation hubs. The result is a $23 BILLION industry that operates right here in B.C.
In fact, the majority of that work is done right in Vancouver, which is also home to the Centre for Digital Media’s Master of Digital Media program, a sixteen month professional graduate program that engages students in the development of real-world digital media products.
In this program, students learn to plan, build and lead digital media projects, work with real clients and unveil real-industry projects. The core differentiator of the Master of Digital Media program and other comparable Masters programs is the emphasis of experiential learning through project courses. In fact, 65% of MDM coursework is project-based. As a result, 95% of Master of Digital Media graduates get jobs in their field.
