The Multimedia program at McMaster University provides students with an opportunity to engage in hands-on media production while learning about the social, historical, and theoretical aspects of new media, design, and humanities computing. Students gain a wide range of experience and skills by creating independent and group projects utilizing audio, video, animation, digital games, web and graphic design, and programming. From courses focusing on visual design and basic interactivity (Design Fundamentals) to 3-D animation techniques (Advanced Animation) to computer programming for the web (Building Social Web Applications), Multimedia students acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to conceive, develop, and create an original Multimedia work in the final year of the program. This Multimedia Thesis project is a unique capstone experience and showcase for students’ creativity, technological skills, and engagement with the field of Multimedia.
