About the program
The Bachelor of Science degree in Emerging Media and Technology offers students the space to play, imagine and solve problems.
The degree program draws on a number of disciplines, including emerging media, design, information sciences, human-computer interaction and communication. The technology curriculum is grounded in social science and the humanities, introducing students to theories of how technology shapes and changes people and societies. Students learn technical applications and skills in problem solving, design, user experience, creative applications and programming. Students synthesize technical and organizational skills in a series of experiential, hands-on and project-based courses in which they work collaboratively in interdisciplinary teams.
Once admitted to the program, you will take a curriculum that prepares you to complete your degree within four years. The first two years are at Anglo-American University and the final two years are at Kent State University, where you will complete a U.S. degree.
Courses will be taught in English and offered in a semester format. In addition to earning a degree, students in this program will immerse themselves in a multicultural environment at one of the most international universities in Europe and at one of the top public universities in the United States. They will learn global perspectives among peers from over 100 countries and be well positioned for a career in the world marketplace.

Every aspect of the city is mesmerizing, from the delicious food to the beautiful buildings. There was never a dull moment while I was there.Jaelyn Campbell, Study Abroad Student, KSU

See what our students have to say
We do almost all of our projects in small international teams, and we work together like we would in a business company and synergize our different ideas. There's flexibilities to meet with teachers outside of class, and ask them questions, not just specifically things we learn in the class.
