As human beings, we storify everything around us: our adventures, sorrows, conflicts, dreams and failures. Without a solid and compelling story, even the best-designed messages struggle to engage their audiences. As a media professional, you have the ability to influence, inspire, inform and move your audiences. If you love storytelling and want to create compelling stories for digital platforms, the M.A. in Digital Storytelling is for you.
Today’s digital storytellers and marketing professionals must be able to create engaging stories that leverage the ever-growing resources of digital technology. The old distinctions between media sectors are rapidly disappearing in today’s online world.
