The Master of Science in Biomedicine and Digital Media program (BMDM) intersects science, technology, entrepreneurship, and interactive digital art design and animation. This skills-based program is for individuals interested in media design and production careers with an emphasis in health and science.

Graduates of this program will be prepared to progress into more advanced graduate studies in science or digital media and/or careers in scientifically oriented media/communication jobs in the public or private sector (e.g., academic, scientific publishing and media companies), or lead their new ventures in digital imaging.


This is an interdisciplinary hybrid (blended) program offered by the College of Medicine. The science courses, which are offered online are taught by faculty from Drexel University College of Medicine. Faculty from Drexel University's College of Media Arts and Design teach the digital media courses which are offered face-to-face. Select courses in both disciplines are offered face-to-face on campus. Students must complete a minimum of 36.0 semester credits to graduate.

  • No thesis requirement
  • Required and elective courses in each discipline
  • Flexible internship (experiential learning)
  • Customizable plan of study

Program Format

The Master of Science in Biomedicine and Digital Media (BMDM) is a hybrid (blended) program, which means that some courses are taught online (biomedicine required courses and most electives) and some courses are taught on campus (all digital media courses). New students are admitted only in the fall, but classes are taught throughout the year (fall, spring, and summer).

Full-time and Part-time Options

Students may meet the graduate degree requirements in either a full-time (at least 9.0 credits per semester) or part-time basis. Full-time students generally complete the program in one year. Students must enroll in at least 4.5 semester credits of College of Medicine courses to qualify for financial aid. For information regarding financial aid, please visit Drexel Central.
