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 the creation of projects designed to display students’ artistic abilities, craft, and knowledge.
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 additional general education courses.
Students who obtain an Associate degree or an Associate of Applied Science degree will be required to complete a service-learning experience. The final grade in the course must qualify for academic credit in order to receive the service-learning endorsement. Please contact an Academic Advisor for courses that offer a service-learning experience, or search in the class schedules.
