Program Description
Students in the Digital Media Arts program learn the fundamental principles and processes of computer-based design using a variety of traditional and non-traditional media with an emphasis on problem-solving and creative exploration.  Using such media as high-definition video, sound, animation, installation art, print and digital photography, students work in a digitally integrated computer lab and studio environment to gain hands-on experience.  Students apply color theory, visual design and conceptualization to project-based assignments that focus on growing their skill sets and technical abilities, while building a portfolio for post-secondary and internship opportunities.  

Throughout the two-year program, students have the opportunity to apply their knowledge and critical analysis skills by participating in student critiques. Using industry-standard hardware and software, students will create digital content that can be applied to a career in video/film production, 2d/3d animation, photography and print media.

Program Fees
There are no tool kit or student fees associated with this program.
