This NEW program provides students with the artistic, communication and technical skills necessary for a wide of range of digital media careers in videography, photography, web design, digital illustration and design.

We see this program as collaboration with the Dept. of Communication to draw upon the strengths of both programs to help students develop and strong and skilled visual voice. 

This curriculum encompasses and explores all aspects of digital motion media from traditional video production to the emerging fields of independent web based content - including television and film concepts.

In whatever capacity they work, graduates bring critical thinking and technical strategies relevant to contemporary media and the media arts to their profession.
