Program Goals Statement

In this program, students gain a foundation in design and drawing and develop skills in visual communication and interactive design with a focus on the creative process. In their second year, they choose electives to emphasize either an animation or motion graphics concentration.

Students create a portfolio of work showcasing their abilities with narrative in time-based media and either transfer to a four-year program in digital media or directly into careers supporting time-based design.
