Businesses continually communicate with employees, customers, and other businesses. The communication is done through printed material, websites, electronic presentations, videos, and other related media. The Media Design Technology program will teach you how to use leading computer applications to prepare these messages. This program also teaches the theory and fundamentals of developing effective communication pieces in each media format. You can choose to focus on one particular discipline or learn skills in several different multimedia fields in preparation for employment in skilled or semi-skilled positions.

Students in this program choose one or more tracks depending on what areas they would like to make their specialties. See the instructor for additional information.
