What is Interactive Media?

Interactive media allows the user to control and manipulate aspects like text, sound, graphics and animation. From board gaming to video gaming, it thrives on new ideas, and delivers opportunities for you to create and explore. Our interactive media can include:

  • Student-created video games
  • Student-created, faculty-led tabletop roleplaying games
  • Interactive poetry
  • Augmented reality projects
  • ...and so much more! What's your idea?
