Visual Communications


A.A.S. Degree (T)

The Multimedia Design Option of the Visual Communications program is a new, innovative option that deals with visual media in non-print forms such as CD's, web pages, and interactive formats. This is a computer intensive option that seeks to blend the visual formats of still and video photography with sound and graphics to create presentations that will bring attention to a client's product or service. Students in this option are able to extend their foundation work in traditional media into the electronic realm. Emphasis will be placed on creative problem solving in addition to skill building in intermediate to advanced multimedia software. Presentations will be designed and executed in preparation for inclusion in the student's final portfolio. Graduates of the program may enter careers in corporate or institutional marketing communication departments, electronic publishing firms, or opt for further study at the baccalaureate level.
