The Digital Media Design program has undergone some exciting changes that will be implemented beginning in the 20/21 academic year. The program’s first year will continue to focus on graphic design, 3D artistry, video, photography, motion graphics, web design and development, illustration, and communications.
After completing the first year, students will receive a certificate. Students will then choose to major in either Video and Motion Graphics or Web Design and Development. Graduates from second year of the program will earn a DMD diploma.
Students finishing first year who are interested in 3D Computer Graphics can apply to the new, two-year Game Design and Development program. This innovative program will take a cohort of 3D artists and a cohort of game programmers. The artists will learn 3D technical artistry for games and game engines. The programmers will learn development for games and game engines. The artists and programmers will work together to design and develop video games. The Game Development program will begin in fall 2021.
