Asbury offers master's in digital storytelling
Asbury University's School of Communication Arts is rolling out a new master's degree program that unites the ability to tell compelling, high-impact stories with the latest in communication strategies and technology.
Beginning this fall, Asbury's Master of Arts in Communication: Digital Storytelling program will equip students with the philosophical background and tools to use narrative as a way of sharing and interpreting experience, creating community, engaging culture and generating universal understanding.
Faculty will share not only the theoretical principles of communication and Biblical engagement, but also speak from personal experience about the role of faith and the power of stories in culture.
Using a blended format of online and on-campus classes, the program includes a two- to four-week session on campus for students who do not hold an undergraduate media degree. All students will take online classes and complete an apprenticeship to further their experience. Find out more at Asbury.edu.
