The Interactive Media Design Certificate of Achievement provides students with the knowledge and skills to generate and manipulate graphics, animations, sound, text and video into consolidated and seamless multimedia presentations for use in developing products or creations such as advanced business presentations and performance pieces, video games, movies, music videos, commercials, CD-ROMs, DVDs, touch screen computer kiosks, and web-based rich media.
The demand for individuals with multi-media design skills to produce rich media content is growing because increasingly more business and companies are hiring designers to create rich media content for employee training, on websites for sales and promotion, and for information and presentations.
These positions are found not only in web design companies but also in brick and mortar companies of all kinds that need people who can produce in-house the kinds of CDs, videos, sales and promotional and employee training rich media content that is rapidly becoming the standard in industry.
Regardless of whether the trend is to outsource or produce in house the rich media content required to develop presentations of all types, most companies are developing content non-textually to meet 21st century information needs.
This program of study is also available as an Associate degree major option. For more information, see the Computer and Information Sciences website.
