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.
