Located in the coastal town of Santa Cruz, California, the University of Santa Cruz (UCSC) hosts an annual enrollment of over 16,000 students and offers about 100 different undergraduate and graduate degree programs–including majors in Art, Economics, History, Philosophy and more. Included in the catalog are several media arts-related opportunities; students can earn both undergraduate and graduate degrees in Film and Digital Media, for example, while the Computer Science department offers a concentration in Game Design. Students can also prepare for careers in multimedia and communications design through the Network and Digital Technology major, and musical students can minor in Electronic Music (which includes audio production training).
Expect to spend about four years earning a bachelor’s degree from UCSC, and roughly three years for advanced degrees. As a public university, UCSC offers tuition discounts to California residents (roughly $13,000 per year); non-residents will pay nearly $23,000 per year for undergraduate programs, and around $16,000 a year for graduate studies.
