Dynamic Media Institute


Our DMI graduate certificate program will allow you to explore the role of dynamic media in communication design.

DMI’s graduate certificate is a one-year, 24 to 29-credit, immersive educational program that gives students the opportunity to focus on the role and new uses of dynamic media in communication design. Upon successful completion, students earn a Graduate Post-Baccalaureate certificate in design, and many apply to continue onto the MFA program, transferring up to 6 credits from the Post-Baccalaureate course of study.

Postbac Design Learning Outcomes

Students who complete the DMI Postbac Design Program are expected to be able to demonstrate the following learning outcomes.

  • Produce a comprehensive thesis project and thesis book relating to interactive communication design on a topic of personal interest
  • Apply design thinking to, and conceive of new ways of designing for a wide range of human interaction, communication and multi-sensory experience
