Getting Ready!

What students do in the program mirrors the creativity and complexity found in the industry. Students work individually and in small design teams to develop effective communication designs for a diverse audience using various media. Final portfolios and demo reels will contain life drawing, graphic design, 3-D models, interactive productions, animations, and digital video "shorts." Work examples reflect the demands of employers in every field of multimedia.

The "blocks" of courses make up a sequence of skill-building experiences beginning with our Foundation Blocks and proceeding on through our Advanced Blocks in our areas of concentration.

Students may choose the blocks of instruction best suited to their individual needs. The courses within each block pertain to one another. For example, students studying experimental animation will also learn 3D animation software. While students may enroll in the entire block to qualify for the Multimedia certificate, any student can choose Multimedia courses as electives.
