In the first semester of Multimedia Design, students will be introduced to design, art, and digital media through the exploration of 2-D and 3-D composition. Software programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign will be utilized to teach design concepts and create compositions. Second semester will cover the basics of HTML website creation and the process of creating complex websites that can be shared across multiple screens through the Adobe XD software. After second semester, students will become certified in Adobe applications.
The second year of Multimedia Design has been developed to introduce students to digital video editing and other areas in the field of Multimedia that coincide with the video editing process.
