TV/Multimedia Concentration

The TV/Multimedia concentration is tailor-made to prepare students for entry level work in media production in many capacities.

With the computer revolution in full swing, the skills and specific programs used to create television also apply to independent film and even webpage design. Students in this concentration will be expected to learn graphics skills, edit digital video, and master a variety of other skills that will enable them to produce media products.

Students may apply these skills to independent video production, television work on any level, advertising, web page design and web management, and a variety of newer opportunities that are just appearing. These include things like virtual reality development and social media.

Students in this program have full access to our equipment and facilities and are encouraged to produce. Students can and have produced independent films in HD and mastered on Blu-Ray as well as DVD. These films can be premiered in our dedicated HD theaatre in 5.1 Surround Sound. Students are also encouraged to meet with local independent film makers who frequently visit our facilities and offer opportunities for our graduates.
