The Advanced Certificate in Digital Media Design for Learning (formerly Educational Communication and Technology) is a 30-credit post-master's program for individuals on a career path that requires new or advanced skills in the design and production, evaluation, and use of technology-based, multimedia learning environments. Typical applicants are those with a prior master's degree in educational technology or media who wish to update or deepen their skils, or those with a master's degree in another area who wish to add educational design skills to their professional practice. The DMDL project-based curriculum is complemented by an excellent internship program with host sites in all areas of educational technology and media. Our alumni work in a variety of areas, including the educational technology and media industries, the education sector, government and policy, and research and development.

The complete program description and requirements may be found in the DMDL Guide for the Master of Arts and Advanced Certificate Programs.
