Students in the Multimedia Technology program are given the unique blend of four major multimedia fields: Television/Video Production, Photography, Radio/Audio Production, and Graphic Design. Graduates of this program will have the knowledge and skills in the development, production and utilization of materials in the multimedia field. This hands-on, practical experience gives students the skills to seek employment in such fields as education, government, industry, advertising, radio, television, film and just about any field in the public relations department. Students will also acquire the skills to do freelance work in photography, graphic design, and video and audio production.

The main emphasis of the Multimedia Technology field is principles and execution through hands-on experience with digital equipment and computer-based technology. Students will receive instruction and practical experience in the television / photography studio, multimedia classroom, audio production area, traditional and electronic darkrooms, and state-of-art Mac computer graphics laboratory.

This is a career program designed to enable students to seek employment at the program's completion. Students planning to transfer should consult with their advisor, the Student Success Center or the four-year institution regarding specific program and possible course transfer issues.

Successful completion of this program qualifies students to apply for an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Multimedia Technology. Students must achieve a "C" or better in the required Multimedia Technology courses.
