About

The Multimedia - Interaction Design program at California State University East Bay is a unique interdisciplinary program at the intersection of interactive content development and interaction design.

Overview

The Multimedia - Interaction Design program at California State University East Bay emphasizes the creative and technical aspects of current and emerging technology and its use in creating, controlling, delivering, and presenting compelling content in an interactive form. This degree draws upon elements from a number of fields including art, journalism, computer science, psychology, and telecommunications.

The master’s degree in Multimedia focuses on Interaction Design,  the creation of interactive applications and objects as part of designed user experience.

Students learn the skills needed to adapt quickly to new environments - a valuable asset for any profession. Because multimedia is a rapidly developing and rapidly changing field, the program focuses as much on the enduring creative process as on the transient technology.
