The General Multimedia Skills Certificate introduces students to the process of designing and producing interactive content for the web and other media. Students will acquire the skills necessary to obtain entry-level positions as multimedia authors, technicians, artists, programmers and developers in various media industries.
Multimedia developers are on the cutting edge of computer technology. They combine graphics, text, sound, animation, and video to make the wired world a dynamic place. Multimedia content can be found in video games, websites, CD-ROMs, DVDs, and touch screen computer kiosks. It can also be found in many advanced business presentations and performance art pieces.

It is important that students who are completing an Associate Degree and desire to transfer to a four-year institution meet with a counselor to plan their lower division coursework.
