  • The fundamental philosophy of the Interactive Media Division is coherent with that of the Cinema-Television School, stressing creativity of expression, experimentation and excellence in execution.

    The Interactive Media Division presents a broad and deep curriculum, exploring the methods and technologies that are shaping art and entertainment today. Located within the world's first film school, the University of Southern California's School of Cinema-Television, the Interactive Media Division (or "IMD") provides leading edge research and a hotbed of ideas for future professional storytellers.

    It is the only program of its kind tied to a cinema-television school and, as such, offers unprecedented opportunities for students to explore media convergence in an environment that leverages the natural advantages of its Hollywood setting. Unlike technical or vocational institutions, the School's interactive media program draws from a rich storytelling tradition, and from a collaborative atmosphere that encourages interaction among students and instructors from a wide range of disciplines.

    Interactive media students learn from and network with:

    • Artists
    • Writers,
    • Directors
    • Producers
    • Sound designers
    • And Cinematographers

    many of whom are—or soon will be—entertainment industry leaders.
