Master program in Multimedia/video production
February 18, 2014 4:05 PM Subscribe
Has anyone completed a master degree in multimedia? This would be a production degree, not research or theoretical.
I work instructional design and support in a elearning group through a major university and have a chance to get tuition at very low cost. I am just not sure if gong through the program will make a difference in obtaining better positions later.
I am in my early 40's and transferred to this position/industry after moving around in IT for about 10 years.

My current department has some multimedia/video production needs but it isn't something that I will be doing as my primary job duties.
I can also go the web dev route which I have more experience in, I know css and html some js and jquery. However it was made clear that there will be no opportunities for actually doing any dev at my present employer.
I am used to the corporate world and frankly working at the university is soooo much slower than I am used to. I think I can get used to it but it seems like I may be atrophying a bit. Any comments on the transition from corporate to university and how you dealt with it would be welcome as well. The pay is really low here and I sometimes think about moving back to IT but the longer I wait the harder it will be to get back there. I have been here for about 8 months now.
