Courses in the Digital Media Production program are broken into production, techniques, activities and core courses. The undergraduate major consists of 36 credit-hours taken over two years. Courses are designed to prepare students for a variety of careers in the dynamic field of digital media production.
Production courses are capped at 20-25 students, giving students a lot of individual faculty attention. Unlike other academic majors, Media Production is a collaborative program where students often work in small teams and put in long nights and weekends in order to produce a quality piece of media. This interdependence requires cooperation and teamwork. The bonds forged in this program often result in longterm professional relationships that endure far beyond the university years.
See the Program Guide for the most up-to-date information on requirements for the major. Students may choose to focus their program in one of our two areas of emphasis: Documentary and Public Affairs or Sports Media.
