Internet and Interactive Digital Media Design combines the study of web design, Internet technologies, digital animation, graphics, and computer programming with written and oral communication skills, graphic arts, and business knowledge to prepare students for careers in information technology, entrepreneurial opportunities, or transfer to a bachelor’s degree. Students who complete the required coursework earn the Associate of Applied Business degree.

The program of study includes two primary areas. The primary focus is on information technologies. Students use industry standard software to develop digital media applications such as games and simulations, digital animations, electronic publications, and dynamic web sites. Students also learn fundamental programming used in digital media such as JavaScript, PHP, and ActionScript.

Second, students study writing, statistics, public speaking, and art to foster skills vital for career or continued educational advancement. Students learn to express critical ideas both written and verbally in a logical and concise manner so their creativity can effectively contribute to their further success. Finally, students choose from a variety of electives based upon their interests and desired goals.

Upon successful completion of the AAB Degree in Internet and Interactive Digital Media Design, students will:

  • Develop a portfolio exhibiting a body of work including websites, digital images and graphics, digital animations, electronic and print publications, games and simulations, programs, and traditional art.

  • Demonstrate professionalism by working in teams as well as individually, understanding client needs, giving presentations, writing reports, conducting research, meeting deadlines, and employing critical problem solving skills.

To achieve these outcomes, most courses in the program of study combine theoretical concepts with hands- on, project-based learning. Student must demonstrate a high level of competency in each area to gain an edge in the highly competitive field of Internet and Interactive Digital Media.
