By utilizing the latest tools available to today’s media developers, students learn how to create professional content for broadcast television, online media, mobile applications, and independent films. Throughout the program, students take courses that help them build a comprehensive understanding of digital content creation and storytelling, with a curriculum that strikes a balance between traditional film foundations and the latest production and postproduction techniques. Students learn how to master essential visual communication and video production methods for digital photography, HD video production, lighting, audio mixing, and nonlinear editing. Supporting classes also cover complementary career skills in computer business applications, finance management, production budgeting, and networking. Class projects will help students apply this knowledge as they craft their own visual and narrative pieces for different media. Students learn to take a story through the entire creative process, including developing a script, planning the logistics of production, working on location to capture their story on camera, as well as file management, editing, and distribution. To help students make the transition into their career after graduation, we’ve also got a team of Career Development professionals that can help students polish their interviewing skills and get them ready to enter the industry.
