Join the next generation of digital revolutionaries in a new interdisciplinary media program with the New Media and Digital Design major at Fordham University.


You are in the midst of digital revolution. We are discovering new media and ways to communicate seemingly every day. As a new media and digital design major, you’ll join the next generation of digital leaders in a new interdisciplinary program at Fordham University.

Our New Media and Digital Design program combines the forces of multiple departments: communication and media studies, visual arts, English, computer and information science, and business.

You’ll develop innovative technical capabilities. You’ll examine the new modes of information-gathering, collaboration, democratic participation, and self-expression. You’ll gain a deep social, historical, and ethical understanding of new media.

And you’ll graduate ready to skillfully navigate an ever-evolving media environment.
