Digital Media Production

Instructor shows student how to use the camera

The Digital Media Production program uses hands-on real world-based curriculum where students learn to write, produce, and direct public service announcements, talk shows, documentaries, dramatic films, audio production, and website development.

Students use the latest professional video cameras to film their projects and edit them on Adobe Premiere Pro.

The Digital Media Production program addresses the needs of corporate, television, e-business, and other media distribution outlets for existing markets, and prepares the student for the next generation of digital production and delivery. It enables students to create compelling and accessible media content to be delivered on television, broadband Internet, or other emerging distribution methods, and prepares them for successful employment.

Most students in the Digital Media Production program are intending to seek a 2-year degree and transfer to a 4-year institution, but we also serve those who want to enter the workforce with the knowledge and skills that they acquired from the AA degree and those who are taking specific classes to improve current performance in the workforce or start their own business.
