Media Sandbox is an integrated program of cinematic arts, journalism, advertising and game development, with additional skills in graphic design, web design, app development, visual storytelling, 3D art and animation.
Our students and faculty collaborate with artists, writers, musicians, scientists and creative thinkers from all across campus as well as with professionals around the country.
We’re opening these entry-level media communication courses to all MSU students – not just ComArtSci majors – for the very first time. Complete a grouping below and earn a commemorative badge for your resume. Or just take them individually. It’s your summer, do what you want.
Students, faculty, staff and curious observers: Want to get notified when we’re hosting an upcoming event, causing art, mischief, or any combination thereof? You know what to do:
