This program is a combination of both a Bachelor of Science degree in Computational Media and a Master of Science degree in Digital Media.  The program will consist of 158 total hours of course work for these two degrees with 122 towards the CM program and 36 hours towards the DM program.  Students will take 12 hours of graduate courses for their undergraduate curriculum and will count 6 hours of graduate work for both graduate and undergraduate credit that will be in Digital Media and will count towards the CM advanced Studio and Capstone requirements.  Fourth-year undergraduates will take the graduate courses on the same schedule as those entering the regular MS program, and in the second year of their curriculum would follow the usual MS curriculum.  During the summer term after their fourth year, students will participate in an approved internship program.


All application materials for the BS Computational Media/MS Digital Media Program (formerly known as the Information Design & Technology Program) must be received by February 1st 2022.

Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Applications must be submitted online at http://grad.gatech.edu/apply-now. In addition, you must provide a writing sample and a URL for web-based work samples in your online application.
