The Media Production curriculum, including video, film and audio, is planned to provide a fundamental course of study and training in basic skills for students who plan to continue study at a four-year institution, expect to enter a professional training program in the media production industry, or wish to seek professional employment in broadcast media, commercial, industrial, interactive, or educational production and distribution. Students develop technical skills, writing skills, aesthetic values, and professional attitudes supported by highly committed faculty with practical experience in the field of production. The attainment of content production skills is demonstrated in a digital portfolio designed to support transfer application or a job search. 

Completion of all curriculum requirements will lead to the award of the associate of arts (A.A.). All students should meet with an academic advisor in the Media Arts & Technologies Department to make an academic plan or discuss career or transfer goals.
