Credit Certificate Program
The Film and Video certificate program teaches video production as applied to the broadcast television, film, corporate and digital media industries with an emphasis on narrative, documentary/news and informational programming. This hands-on program teaches all aspects of field, studio and video post-production on advanced technology in the college’s Center for New Media. The Advanced Media Production and Internship act as capstone courses providing students with portfolio examples of professional work and on-site work experience in preparation for entry level positions or contract employment in the field.
This 30-credit certificate program is intended as a stackable credential for students looking to specialize in digital video production. When enrolling in this program as a standalone occupational certificate, it is recommended that students entering the program either have an associate’s degree or higher or are enrolled in the New Media Production Associate’s degree program to improve employability upon graduation.
Note About Financial Aid
Federal regulations stipulate that a student may only receive financial aid for courses that count towards their degree/certificate. To comply with this regulation, MxCC must track the courses that a student is registered for that count towards their degree/certificate program. Courses identified as not meeting program requirements will not be included in the calculation of financial aid eligibility. Pre requisites will be covered. This procedure is now in effect. Eligibility ceases once a student attempts 90 credits for a typical 60 credit program.
