Master of Arts in Media Production
The media landscape is changing at an unprecedented rate. To succeed as creative producers we must connect, interact, inform, and entertain by combining new platforms and technologies with time proven storytelling techniques. We have the opportunity to innovate and advocate for change. To inspire and learn. To take storytelling to the next level.
The Master of Arts in Media Production focuses on the creation and analysis of media projects with an emphasis on aesthetics, research, technology, and financing structures that underpin excellence in media. Students explore the creative, theoretical, economic, and cultural structures that influence how media is produced and disseminated. Projects created by the masters candidates may carve out a place for their creators in the evolving media landscape. Candidates in the Program may delve into research on broadcasting, new media, journalism, and digital communications in collaboration with the Rogers Communications Centre, a Ryerson University research centre.
“This master’s program gave me access to the creative resources, the right network and the education I need in order to become a successful producer.”
This Program challenges students to explore traditional and innovative media forms, platforms and technologies to tell compelling stories and reach diverse audiences. Applicants bring strong creative, academic, and production expertise to the Program. Building on their creative ability, students leverage the resources available at Ryerson and strategic ties with media companies beyond the University’s walls to develop compelling productions in a variety of media.
Students benefit from the expertise and passion of a diverse faculty from a broad range of disciplines. The Masters of Arts in Media Production takes a multi-disciplinary approach encompassing radio, audio, television, new media, communication and media theory, transmedia studies, and the business of media.
