You must complete 30 credits over 3 semesters to obtain a Master of Science in Integrated Digital Media. Our students typically take a 4 course load at 3 credits per course in the fall and spring of their first year. It is required that you enroll in each of the 3-credit thesis seminars in your second and third semesters. Below is the distribution of your credit requirements.
Special Topics courses, taught by regular and adjunct faculty, are selected each year from a group of possible courses based on the interests of the first-year class. For example, if the entering DM class is specifically interested in UX/UI or Mobile Application Development (based on its project work in the first-semester seminar), the faculty will “commission” an elective on that topic.
Independent Study enrollment is permitted for DM students interested in specific research areas outside of the electives offered.
Internships are available for students seeking to gain job experience outside of the School of Engineering in the commercial or nonprofit sector. Students should contact the instructor for DM 4033 Internship one semester in advance to prepare for the internship. Both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for internships for credit.
Students can take graduate courses offered by other departments at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering, including Tech Management and Innovation, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering and others. Students can also take up to 3 elective, graduate courses offered through other NYU schools.
