Narrative and Emerging Media, MA
The Los Angeles-based MA in Narrative and Emerging Media (MA-NEM) focuses on the development of a creative practice and critical understanding of emerging storytelling and immersive experience content creation in augmented, virtual and extended reality, and short-form digital, streaming and virtual production. The program is a collaborative effort between the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts and the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
ASU California Center
Students earning this degree will study at the ASU California Center at the Herald Examiner Building in downtown Los Angeles. The center was custom-designed with emerging technology curriculum in mind, including two studios, one with a large green screen that allows for virtual reality productions, virtual sets and a control room, and another with a large Planar LCD wall, which allows for immersive film and video shoots (such as those used in “The Mandalorian”). MA-NEM students will have the opportunity to learn and work in these spaces to create compelling visual storytelling.
