The New Media program is based on a liberal arts foundation of classes with an emphasis on developing knowledge and skills in the growing areas of animation and interactivity, which have become a greater part of our rapidly changing visual world. The program complements and draws on the strengths of related associate degree programs in communication and media arts, graphic design, and photography. Program courses combine the creative and expressive elements of the fine arts with digital technologies. Course work includes drawing, photography, visual design, story development, digital video, Flash, 2D and 3D animation, along with other emerging technology. Students make new media content for print and the web, CD-Rom, and DVD, along with a portfolio of work to facilitate employment or transfer to a four-year school.
