Master's program

Niche :
This Master's program is Taiwan's first program to include courses offered by a college of communication and a college of science (information technology). This unique interdisciplinary program makes the Department stand out from all the IT-related departments and graduate schools both in Taiwan and overseas. NCCU's Department of Journalism and College of Communication have a 70-year research and teaching history and are supported by the University's departments of liberal arts, social sciences, psychology, intellectual property, marketing, innovation and creativity, etc. By combining communications and IT, the Program offers a quality environment for technological innovation in areas such as digital storytelling, interactive research, and new media.

After considering the types of professionals Taiwan's digital content industry needs, the Program pooled the teaching and research resources of the College of Communication and the College of Science and plans to develop the following two core areas in order to create a program with its own special characteristics.

  1. Digital storytelling and entertainment technology
  2. New media and interactive design

Objective :
The Program is aimed at training individuals specializing in the creation, design, production, planning, and systems development of digital content, with a focus on nurturing abilities such as creativity, international communication, and management and integration.

Markets :
