New media studies (NMS) is an interdisciplinary field that examines the processes and platforms through which the digital encoding of various media operates and circulates. New media studies also focuses on how digitally encoded media products are combined into “new” media forms, such as websites, webcasts, interactive games, graphic designs, and sales and technical information. Put simply, we study ways to both create and better understand content strategies, web and interactive design and development, and the transformation of visual and written communication on digital platforms and in digital culture more broadly.
