Students are presented with real communication challenges that require teamwork—choose either to initiate and lead, or support the work of others in developing a project to meet industry standards. You’ll end up with a portfolio of work that demonstrates your hard-earned skills and talent to potential employers.

Your creativity and skills qualify you for numerous positions in the technical fields of audio, video and multimedia production, as well as media communications. Prospective employers include audio/video/multimedia production houses, corporate and educational video production houses, recording studios, music, cable, radio and television stations. Employment opportunities also exist as freelance audio and video producers. Find out where your creativity can take you!

You’ll find an invigorating and challenging program that hones your craft across a wide range of digital environments. The Media Specialization teaches you to write, announce, shoot, record, edit, and produce items for broadcast, cable, and audio/visual departments. The Interactive Specialization develops skills in writing, design, image editing and code for interactive applications for web, mobile, animation and basic game development firms.

Both specializations share a common first term that teaches a working knowledge of multimedia communication, and lets you work as a team with a diverse group of fellow students on industry-standard projects. At the end of the year you can choose to exit with an Interactive Media Arts certificate. In year two, Media Specialization students have the choice to major in Writer/Producer or Multimedia Producer, while those in the Interactive Specialization can major in Designer or Developer.
