Designated Emphasis & Certificate in New Media — 3/1/2019 Published: February 11, 2019 By: Andy Sohn The Berkeley Center for New Media (BCNM) is now accepting applications for admission to the Designated Emphasis (D.E.) in New Media Ph.D. program, and the Graduate Certificate in New Media M.A. program. Applications are due March 1, 2019. About the DE in New Media (Ph.D. Students) BCNM’s Designated Emphasis (D.E.) program is for selected UC Berkeley Ph.D. students from any Berkeley home department with research interests in new media. It is supplemental to the Ph.D. program in regular departments, and provides enhanced skills in analyzing and/or designing future media with an awareness of historical, social, cultural perspectives that might not be visible from any single disciplinary point of view. Find out more about the Designated Emphasis program. About the Certificate in New Media (M.A. Students) The Graduate Certificate is designed to enhance interdisciplinary graduate studies for students currently enrolled in a M.A. program at UC Berkeley. The Certificate emphasizes a critical understanding of the nature and implications of new media, drawing on theories and methodologies from across the disciplinary spectrum—the arts, the humanities and social sciences, and science and engineering. The Graduate Certificate in New Media provides students with an introduction to the different facets of new media research and an ensuing competitive edge for some of the most desirable jobs in industry and academia. Find out more about the Certificate in New Media. *M.A. students must apply to the Certificate Program during their first year of study. More information on both programs and the application processes can be found on the BCNM website. Please contact Program Officer Lara Wolfe with any questions.
