What Is Multimedia and Web Design?
This program option provides students with a comprehensive knowledge of multimedia and Web design. Students will be able to choose from courses that focus on Web page design and development, multimedia programming, 2D and 3D graphics and animation for the Web, video and sound editing, and dynamic scripting (programming) languages to create vibrant websites. Students will learn how to integrate different types of content (script, design, video, audio, etc.) into an artistically powerful whole multimedia project.
