Cross-media combines the areas of media production, storytelling, and marketing, offering both theoretical groundwork and exciting practical assignments. Studying cross-media means learning how to tell a story that unfolds in many directions. For example, a story is introduced as a web series, then expanded on social media, and then further explored as a live performance.
However, studying cross-media doesn’t only focus on learning different production practices. Successful media practitioners, working independently or for large corporations, need to be able to understand the market. By studying cross-media, students will learn how to interpret and research data and how to create cross-media marketing campaigns which are able to reach and engage different audiences.
