Emerson’s Media Design (MA) blends art, technology, and community-based research to address social justice issues ranging from climate change and public health to voting rights, racial injustice, and food insecurity—or anything you’re passionate about changing in your local or global community.

Housed in our renowned Engagement Lab, our research-based design lab, the Media Design program is designed for artists looking to drive civic change through different forms of media and technology such as video games, apps, film, websites, and more.
