Program Summary

The Digital Media/Multimedia Foundations certificate program introduces students to one of the fastest growing sectors in the computer industry. It is the foundational certificate for the Digital Arts, Media and Interactive Web Design (DIG-AS) program. Digital Media pertains to the convergence of communication technologies, including television, the World Wide Web, and computer-based interactivity and nonlinear structure. It extends well beyond the scope of the business world. Interactive games, education, CD-ROMs, DVDs, digital video, and dynamic Websites are changing the way we learn and entertain ourselves. The program was created in partnership with skilled and talented professionals drawing on their leadership in digital technology. The program was also designed in collaboration with the Interactive Media Technology Project consortium commissioned to update the Student Performance Standards and Curriculum Frameworks for AS/AA degrees throughout Florida. Students enrolled in the program not only get on track to receive a well-rounded general education with an emphasis on originality and creativity, but also acquire the specific skills essential to working in today's digital media industry and the future.
