Certificate Programs

Certificate in Digital Media
The Certificate in Digital Media (formerly Computer Graphics) focuses on technical and real-life challenges that arise when working with computer graphics software. Digital media software applications are introduced through demonstrations, in-class exercises, homework assignments and skills-building projects. Course curriculum is subject to change, often based on changes in the software industry.

To earn a non-credit certificate, candidates must successfully complete three qualifying 30-hour courses in their chosen area of study. Each semester different course choices are offered. These courses are listed as Non-credit Courses and are designated in the course description as “eligible toward a certificate program”.

Students working on a certificate are expected to attend all classes and successfully complete the three 30-hour courses within three years of their start date. Most certificate courses include both in-class and homework assignments.

Students who have successful completed three required courses can complete the Certificate Completion Application Form.
