The Visual Art & Design Department allows students to specialize in the following areas: Animation, Graphic Design, Illustration, Multimedia, Photography, Web Design, and Graphic Communications Technologies.

Students who elect to pursue an AAS Degree in Multimedia will prepare themselves for entry-level work using industry applications for authoring multimedia content for diverse delivery mediums, including internet, mobile devices, HDTV content and turn key applications. In addition, students will become adept at using computers to edit sound and video, create 3D graphics, animation and digital artwork, as well as designing/producing printed collateral and developing websites. These technical skills are complimented by courses that will provide the opportunity to acquire solid art and design abilities. Those with a propensity for learning technical concepts and a creative and artistic aptitude will enjoy the exciting field of multimedia.

Career Opportunities
