UConn Faculty Teach Digital Media & Design Certificate Courses

The faculty members who teach our online courses are the same nationally recognized experts who teach on-campus DMD undergraduate and graduate-level courses. Each brings a wealth of real-world work experience from all over the country to “class.” And they are committed to continually adapting the curriculum to reflect new DMD strategies, technologies, and platforms. Because the program is part of the School of Fine Arts, credits can be applied to a Master of Arts or a Master of Fine Arts should this be something you’re interested in pursuing.
