Welcome to Bradley University’s Department of Interactive Media. The Department is composed of three distinct concentrations. Students have the ability to focus on one of three areas when they come to study at Bradley University’s nationally ranked department.
- Animation and Visual Effects
- Game Design
- Web and Application Design
Students that graduate from the department are skilled practitioners that understand the theories underlying their production techniques. Our graduates work at top-tier companies; such as Disney Animation, Dreamworks Animation, Sony Computer Entertainment, Leo Burnett, Caterpillar, and other industry leaders.
Students gain mastery through a combination of experiential learning both in and out of the classroom. An active student body works to collaboratively create exciting interactive experiences as part of their course requirements and also through independent publishing and production efforts.
Small class sizes are a key component of our educational structure with close engagement with faculty and access to the tools needed for success.
Our program is rigorous, but does not have a portfolio requirement. We encourage all potential candidates to consider a visit to campus to learn more about what Bradley has to offer and why the Princeton Review and the Midwest Animation Review have highly ranked the department.
The Department Viewbook that is linked below provides excellent insight into past student experiences and shares some faculty perspectives, as well. You can also go directly to our admissions page to get more information about how to apply to Bradley and the Department.
