Program Description

The Digital Media program prepares students for entry-level jobs in the digital design and multimedia industry. Students learn to synthesize multimedia, hypertext, computer programming, information architecture, and client/server technologies using both Internet and non-network-based media.

Students develop skills in communication, critical thinking, and problem solving as well as interface design, multimedia formats, application programming, data architecture, and client/server technologies. The program develops technical skills through practical applications that employ current and emerging standards and technologies.

Note: Courses in the Digital Media Technology program use the Adobe Creative Cloud software suite. Students must have access to this software outside of the classroom, in order to complete assignments and projects. The software may be purchased from Adobe, or students may visit an SPCC campus and utilize the Macintosh workstations housed at the SPCC libraries and Academic Support Centers.
