The Multimedia Design emphasis prepares students for entry-level positions in the interactive design, multimedia design and digital video industries. The curriculum stresses the development of digital design skills for CD ROM, interactive DVD, digital video editing, motion graphics, web production, digital imaging and print design.

Students develop their skills using relevant technology including industry standard computer applications. Students learn to use creativity, conceptual thinking and technical expertise to develop marketable design solutions through a wide gamut of real world projects. Graduates can secure entry-level employment with television stations, design studios, web development companies and interactive multimedia studios. Since employers today put emphasis on communication literacy, students also take courses to develop skills in writing, public speaking, psychology, professional development, history and marketing to round out their educations.

Students who select this curriculum and wish to transfer later to a four-year institution should check with that institution. While many courses will transfer, certain specialized courses may not.

* Students wishing to transfer to the University of Baltimore’s Simulation and Digital Entertainment degree should follow this degree and take CIS-105 or CIS-132 as their elective.
