Perhaps unsurprisingly, Harvard University is home to Grad School Hub's #1 online master's in Web Design. Harvard awards a Master of Liberal Arts in Extension Studies in the Digital Media Design field. The MLA is provided through a hybrid format, requiring students to take at least one course on campus. Weekend on-campus course options are available. The program details both the artistic and technical aspects of effective digital media. Prior to admission, students must complete two stipulated online degree courses. Admitted students then go on to work through the 12-course curriculum. Students must take courses in the following areas: animation, film, or virtual reality; computational design; instructional design; and web design and application development. The program is completed through a capstone project, where Harvard students present an original digital media prototype. Harvard Extension School prioritizes affordability: This degree program is the second most affordable on this list.
