Purpose: The Digital Art and Design Career Studies Certificate is a response to the non-conventional short-term program of study
needs of many students within our region. These specialized program options represent a variety of career and academic interest areas and are
intended to represent the minimum amount of college coursework considered representative of their fields of study. Each program option is
designed as a distinct “mini-curriculum” to meet minimum vocational skills.
Occupational Objectives: The five-course, 17-credit Digital Art and Design Career Studies Certificate is intended to provide a solid
foundation of skills for entry level work in graphic and interactive design, multimedia, and video production.
Admission to the Digital Art and Design Career Studies Certificate is based upon the general requirements for the
College. If a student meets the general admission requirements, a counselor will discuss the student’s academic strengths and weaknesses. Any
academic deficiencies may be corrected in the College’s Developmental Studies program.
