Creative Media and Entertainment

Basic Studio Production

Creative Media and Entertainment emphasizes the production process, from concept to completion. Through hands-on instruction and theory-based project management coursework students learn how to create and distribute their content via the web, through traditional media channels, in independent media, and in corporate settings.

Students explore the production of content for television, film, websites and interactive media. With studies in digital video production and editing, graphic design, animation, interactive media and web design, students develop a broad skill set and an understanding of both traditional and new media. 

Rich media is an interactive blend of all communications disciplines. Students gain experience in this convergence of creativity and technology by learning in classrooms and labs equipped with the best and most current software and delivery platforms.

Emphasis is on the entire production process, from concept to completion. Through hands-on instruction and theory-based project management coursework, students receive a comprehensive education in this rapidly changing field. They learn to use industry-standard software, the techniques behind superior communications and entertainment and the keys to navigating the disciplines of emerging media.

Students with a passion for storytelling and communicating, and a talent for expressing themselves through visual media can find many rewarding professions. With student films, television programs and other collaborations, we emulate the modern media workplace and give students a solid foundation on which to build their careers. Hear from DMP major Matt Michel '16 about what this program has done to prepare him for his future.
