The Digital Media A.S. program is designed for students interested in developing and enhancing professional expertise in the field of digital art. Its goal is to fortify students with the skills used in the digital creation of web-based content, animation, digital design for print media and digital video production. Core classes offer a strong foundation in the history, theory, and studio practice of digital media, as well as, in the use of basic software.
Students in the Digital Media A.S. program will receive a sequence of study that will offer them artistic and technical skills vital to the contemporary media design workplace. Students will be trained to use industry-standard equipment and software and will assemble a print and digital portfolio for job interviews or transfer for further study that will demonstrate skills in design, digital imaging, animation, video editing, layout, web-based and interactive media.
The coursework is intended to provide suitable preparation for entry level employment in computer design and publishing. It would also be suitable for those individuals already employed in the field, to upgrade and expand their skills. Career opportunities exist for graphic designers in advertising agencies, design firms, newspapers, magazines, television stations, web and multimedia production companies, retail stores, printers, government agencies and corporate in-house art departments.
