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 themselves into the digital media world. Whether students plan to develop their own startup, work in the corporate world or go on to complete further studies, we provide the framework for success.
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 education.

At Ryerson, we understand that pursuing graduate studies is a significant financial investment. Funding comes from a combination of employment contracts (as a teaching assistant), scholarships, awards and stipends. There are a number of additional funding sources – internal and external – available to graduate students that can increase these funding levels.
Finding a Supervisor
Students should apply to the program first. Applications that meet the minimum requirements of the program will be forwarded to faculty members in the program for review. Successful applicants will be invited to visit the program and meet with faculty members that are interested in supervising them as a graduate student in their research group. A matching system is used to find the best students/supervisor match (using input from both applicants and faculty members). After a suitable match is determined, an official offer of admission will be sent with the supervisor named in the offer.
