The Digital Media and Design Associate in Applied Science Degree in Digital A/V Production and Editing provides you with the conceptual, critical, creative and technical skills you'll need to create and produce a variety of commercial, educational and artistic audio and video projects. Building on conventional audio and video communication formats, Digital A/V Production and Editing will explore the realm of new media, creating art and design works including digital sound and music, still and moving images, compositing, special effects, 2D and 3D animations, Web, video and interactive media. We have created a robust curriculum that will keep up with industry developments and trends.
