The growth of the media production and entertainment industry in Florida has increased the demand for experienced multimedia production professionals in private industry, public service, and education. The Digital Media/Multimedia Technologies program provides a unique, interdisciplinary program in which you will learn to integrate graphics, sound, video, animation, text, and still images in preparation for jobs and careers in multimedia-related industries.
Job opportunities should be especially good for graphic designers, multimedia artists/designers, motion graphics artists/designers and photographers.
Besides artistic ability and creativity, digital media production jobs are usually required to have some formal training. A portfolio (a collection of samples of work) is also a required tool when looking for a job. Work completed while attending school can be used in a portfolio. Graduates in their first jobs should expect to start working in entry-level opportunities; however, as they progress, they will receive more advanced responsibility and assignments.
