Overview

Key Learning Outcomes

Through the Master of Liberal Arts, Digital Media Design degree from Harvard University program you will:

  • Develop an understanding and application of the latest tools in the communication portfolio, such as web design, video, and still photography.
  • Build deeper knowledge of modern production methods and perspective to harness new and emerging technologies.
  • Gain experience in applied learning through varied coursework and a thesis or capstone.

Program Website:

The degree includes nine courses—at least one taken on campus—and a thesis or capstone project.

  • Get started. You begin by completing three admission courses chosen from the program curriculum. This is your opportunity to demonstrate your commitment and ability to perform well as a Harvard student.
  • Apply to the program. While you are completing your third admission course, you submit your application. We have application periods in the fall, spring, and summer.
  • Continue your studies, online and on campus. As you progress through the program, you choose from courses offered on campus or online, in the fall, spring, or summer. To fully experience Harvard, you take at least one course on campus as part of your degree. Short, intensive on-campus options are available.
  • Complete your thesis or capstone project. If you choose the thesis track, you work with a thesis director to conduct in-depth research on a topic relevant to your professional plans. You'll emerge with a solid understanding of how research is executed and communicated, producing publishable quality results. If you choose a capstone track, you'll apply knowledge and skills obtained in the program to produce an innovative digital media prototype, ordinarily in web design or video production, and present it to a faculty committee for artistic and technical critiques.
  • Graduate with your Harvard degree. You participate in the annual Harvard Commencement, receiving your Harvard University degree: Master of Liberal Arts (ALM) in extension studies, field: Digital Media Design.

Admissions: Earn Your Way In

To begin the admission process, you simply register—no application needed—for the following two, graduate-level degree courses (available online):

  • 1 computation design course
  • 1 animation, film, or virtual reality or design and application development for the web course

The two courses don't need to be taken in a particular order or in the same semester, but each course must be completed with a grade of B or higher, without letting your overall Harvard cumulative GPA dip below 3.0.

Before you enroll in any degree-applicable courses, you must possess a four-year regionally accredited US bachelor's degree. You cannot already have or be in the process of earning a master's degree in Digital Media Design or a related field. Foreign bachelor’s degrees must be evaluated, and the Admissions Office makes final determinations about eligibility.
