Program Description

Code 274 - 64-66 Credits

The Photography and Multimedia program emphasizes creativity, and individuals become well-suited for positions requiring artistic design and image development. In a hands-on learning environment, students gain four areas of specialization in the core courses. In the seminars students work with instructors to implement learning through creation of projects designed to display students’ artistic abilities, craft, and knowledge. The following courses are required for the program.

Working professionals and employers designed the curriculum to develop individuals who thrive in fast-paced work environments and to prepare students to use state-of-the-art technology with artistic expression. Graduates of this program are well-rounded individuals with a background adaptable to a variety of media related fields. The program includes four main areas of emphasis: photography, multimedia, animation, and visual art. The curriculum blends traditional and digital media technologies while encouraging technical proficiency and aesthetic awareness of photography, multimedia, film animation, visual art, video capture and editing, sound capture and editing, web design, and graphic design as both an art form and a professional medium of communication.

Associate degrees with concentrations in animation or photography may transfer to four-year institutions if students take the additional general education courses. Transfer guides are available in the Academic Advising office.
