New Media Design

The Multimedia/New Media Design certificate program prepares students for careers in the field of interactive multimedia production used in business, marketing, education, entertainment and the World Wide Web. Students learn interactive multimedia design, authoring and production including graphics, audio, video and animation. Graduates leave with a portfolio of work experience that prepares them for careers as multimedia producers, web designers, project managers or media production specialists.

The certificate should not be taken by a student who has no experience in design. It is only meant to teach the technical skills not design skills and is not recommended unless the student already has some sort of degree or experience.

This is a 30-credit certificate that may take a full-time student who has to take no remedial courses one year to complete. A student who attends full time and has to take no remedial courses may graduate in two semesters (one year). Part time students may take longer depending on course load.

A Certificate in Multimedia is broad and can’t cover all of the necessary skills to work in most positions, students should consider transferring to a four-year college or art school, which has specialized programs within Multimedia. The credits from this certificate will transfer into the Multimedia Degree.
