Students completing this program will be prepared to work as videographers, audio technicians, video editors, producers, directors and related occupational roles.
Extensive computer activities and location and studio production are required for some courses in this curriculum.

Students exit this program with a digital portfolio of their work to aid in obtaining employment in the digital video field.
