Overview

With the quality and ease-of-use of digital video camcorders, anyone can capture moving images, but the result is like a Stradivarius violin: it takes training to make music! The Digital Video Graduate Certificate is a hands-on introduction to digital video technologies, as well as an examination of the social, cultural, and political implications of moving-image production in the digital age. Students will gain competency in digital production and post-production while exploring various formal, conceptual, and structural strategies. Students will learn to generate digital video that communicates effectively and inventively, in preparation for positions in the creative industries of gaming, design, and media production.

The courses in this program also serve as a concentration in the Master of Professional Studies in Digital Media.
