** APPLICATIONS FOR 2018/19 ARE CLOSED **
The MDM is only offered full time and only has one intake per year.
The MDM program serves to prepare students for the digital economy by enhancing their primary skill set with a digital media focus. We encourage students from every and any background to apply for a spot.
Applicants must have completed a four-year undergraduate degree from an accredited university in North America, or an equivalent degree from an accredited institution outside North America. Applicants must have an overall average of 3.0/4.33 (B) or equivalent in the last two years of their undergraduate studies.
Students may apply from any area of specialization, but post-secondary education in the areas of engineering, business, multimedia, science, media production, graphics, fine arts, art history or design will be particularly useful. Previous digital media, programming, and production experiences are recommended but not required.
Applicants must demonstrate that they have the necessary background to pursue intensive work in a production-oriented digital media program. A portfolio of your work will be required.
Two academic reference letters are required.
If you have been working within the industry for more than two years, all letters can be industry-related references. If you are providing industry related references, three letters will be required. It is your responsibility to contact the referee before providing their contact information on the online application form to confirm their availability.
Other program-specific background information such as a resumé/CV and Statement of Interest must be submitted as part of your online application.
Interviews may be required. We will contact applicants who require an interview. In cases where distance is prohibitive, the interview may be facilitated by other means such as Skype or teleconference.
The following are a few recommendations for the Statement of Interest:
