Our Multi-Media Arts Program combines the two worlds of Recording & Sound Technology with Photography and Video Production by teaching students the skills and techniques they need to know to be a professional in the fields of audio, photography and video production. These marketable skill sets afford students job opportunities in multiple fields within the vast multi-media industry. Content creation is a universal, highly-profitable industry, and such content has never been in higher demand than it is today. As a Multi-Media student, you will be surrounded and inspired by other motivated, talented, and artistic students as you learn everything there is to know about recording devices, microphones, cameras, and the compatible industry-standard editing software. There are countless creative things you can do with the knowledge obtained in this program.


Never before have we seen the corporate explosion of jobs in still photography that we are witnessing today. As the world focuses on generating more online content for marketing purposes, employers are seeking well-rounded individuals to create visually stimulating content to use on websites and social media. This activity draws viewers to the company’s website and in turn strengthens their SEO and search rankings, leading to higher sales. This demand for trained photographers is what is fueling the job growth in this exciting and fast-paced field.


YouTube. Netflix. Hulu. Facebook. Instagram.

Video is everywhere. Despite a lot of content being recorded on smart phones nowadays, careers are built on expertise in video production. Whether they dream of working in Hollywood films, online content creation, or commercial videography for local businesses, our students prepare for such careers through hands-on application of the fundamentals of moving images.

Students learn the entire process: pre-production scriptwriting, on-set video production, audio production for video, and post-production editing. Every hit TV show, major motion picture, or social media star has a crew of video production experts behind them; our students study everything they need to join that team, or create something entirely their own.


Quality sound work is the backbone of modern media; when good audio is missing, it greatly diminishes the production quality of any product.  As a recording and sound student, you will train with motivated, determined classmates under industry professionals, as you learn to produce excellent music and pristine field audio.
