Ryerson’s Master of Digital Media is an intensive 12-month professional program designed to equip graduates with the skills and industry experience they will need as they launch into themselves into the digital media world. Whether our students plan to develop their own startup, work in the corporate world or go on to further studies; we provide the framework for success.
The program intersects three key areas of digital media: art & design, technology, and business & entrepreneurship. Gaining perspective in each of these areas will help you tackle problems from innovative angles.
This program is like taking the industry for a spin. You’ll work on team-driven projects with real-world outcomes. Through prototyping and innovation, you’ll get first-hand insight into the challenges you’ll be dealing with when you graduate.
The MDM program is fully integrated into one of Canada’s largest startup incubators, the Digital Media Zone at Ryerson University. You’ll work directly with a vibrant community of young entrepreneurs and have access to cutting-edge technologies, labs and resources.

THE DIGITAL MEDIA ZONE
The MDM demands a base of highly successful and motivated researchers who want to communicate their ideas and passion to students. They also see their work in an entrepreneurial light. Our faculty members are familiar with the industry and have a deep knowledge of content in such areas as computer science, nanotechnology, wireless broadband networks, online identity construction, politics, film studies, rehabilitation engineering, privacy laws, e-commerce, etc. Ryerson is therefore able to draw on deep and broad faculty expertise in each of the three contributing areas (design, technology, and business) with the necessary connections to industry.
