The Centre for Digital Media (CDM) opened its doors in 2007, with the first cohort graduating from the Master of Digital Media (MDM) graduate degree program in 2009. The MDM is now an internationally recognized, research-informed and industry relevant 16- month program with an emphasis on experiential learning.

The Master of Digital Media program is accredited by all four partners with SFU holding the Management Services Agreement to deliver academic programs at the CDM. Faculty who are teaching in the program are employees of SFU, while the 15 staff who oversee academic program delivery, real estate and property management, and administration and finance are employees of GNWC.

The incumbent Director of the MDM program will be retiring later this year, and GNWC is conducting a national search to recruit an Academic Director who will be responsible for overseeing the academic, business and operational affairs of GNWC.
