Emerging Media Masters

Emerging Media Masters

The Emerging Media Masters is the New Media Institute's post-graduate program that focuses on the intersection of technology and design. Heavily drawing upon the courses taught in the certificate, the masters program features a project-based curriculum with a presentation of the capstone project at its conclusion. The capstone project may be of 3 categories: Product Development, Applied Technical or Design Research Publications, or Client-Based Solutions. My capstone project is a Client-Based Solution, where I work within a team of 3 to create a brand new podcast, Georgia On Your Mind. Using guidance learned from the courses below, we will work to build new branding, develop promototion, and, of course, produce podcast episodes.

Emerging Media Strategy

JRMC 7013 • Fall 2022

Emerging Media Strategy focused heavily on user research and designing with the end user in mind. Studying topics like human centered design and research metrics, this course pushed me to critically think about the ways a product can interact with people- intentionally and unintentionally.

Digital Customer Experience Design

JRMC 7010e • May 2022

JRMC 7010 analyzed the world of design through a perspective of the customer's experience. Emphasizing the end user's experience with a product influences much of the design of the product from early planning stages to execution of the final product.


Double Dawg Courses

There are several courses that count towards the Emerging Media currciulum, but were taken during my undergrad. UGA's Double Dawg program allowed me to take these graduate-level courses before graduating with my bachelor's. These courses counted towards both the New Media Certificate and Emerging Media curriculum.
