The Media Design program @ Emerson College prepares you for a career improving the world through art, media, technology, and civic engagement.
MD students partner with local and global organizations to learn how we can use art and design to help support stronger and more inclusive communities. From designing apps and interactive learning guides to building physical installations with city governments and community-based organizations, Media Design @Emerson will teach you how to effectively engage with different populations through and with dynamic design interventions.
Students in the Lab’s media design program:
All Media Design students work with partner organizations to apply what they are learning to real world scenarios! Partners represent organizations of all sizes and work across various sectors and geographic locations. They include: local government offices, environmental agencies, community organizations, human rights groups, transportation, and housing advocates, and so on. Partners work with our students to share the specific challenges they are engaged in. Students then enter in co-design processes with their peers and the partner to prototype innovative and dynamic design-driven responses to pressing challenges.
