Mass Media: Multimedia Concentration
Associate of Arts
The Multimedia Concentration can lead to a number of exciting career fields, including journalism, public relations, communications, marketing, advertising, animation, law, event planning, photography, broadcasting, podcasting and many more. In Multimedia, students learn how to create and distribute content to a large audience through digital mediums using the most up-to-date software available. Multimedia majors are poised to enter the workforce upon graduation or to continue their studies in a number of media-related fields.
Laramie County Community College's Multimedia curriculum differs from the Mass Media degree in that it puts more emphasis on digital delivery. The curriculum leads to an Associate of Arts Degree and provides the basic requirements for a variety of specialized areas offered at four-year institutions. Students are encouraged to experiment in digital delivery of text, images and video.
Non-majors will find that Multimedia courses are beneficial in career fields that require employees to regularly communicate and produce content in digital environments. Examples would include the ability to design and update web pages, operate a content management system, and produce compelling images and video.
