The Digital Multimedia program is a collaborative initiative designed to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes students need to create and respond to evolving digital media techniques.

Students use state-of-the-art Apple computers and digital equipment to create multimedia projects. In this course, students will use the Adobe Master Suite Collection in photography and videography to create and manipulate digital media designs.

Students in this program will also utilize audio mixing and recording equipment in the digitally equipped sound studio.

In addition, students learn professional and communication skills necessary to establish, maintain and develop client relationships.

The program offers interdisciplinary study that provides frameworks within which motivated students combine their knowledge of the arts with critical training using cutting edge and emerging creative technologies.
