Description

Media design is considered to be the communication language of the computer world. Media design specialists develop the visuals needed for communication. The Internet and print materials would be very plain without the creative abilities of media design specialists. The Media Design Program provides a strong foundation in the diverse and complex fields of graphic design, digital video, multimedia design, and Internet development. Students will work with an excellent teaching staff who will provide hands-on instruction.
