Visual Media Registration

The Visual Media program is a rigorous 2-year curriculum providing the framework for a strong portfolio and guidance for career preparation, whether as an entrepreneur or as a visual communications professional. Examine concepts, ask questions, solve creative problems and push the boundaries of traditional media using the power of still and motion imagery. Expand your knowledge both individually and in small teams to craft creative solutions from aesthetic conception to final application.
