Careers for Creative People

The Digital Media Program at SENMC prepares students for careers in film, video, graphic design, animation, digital art, and web design. We offer a two-year associates degree and four one-year certificates.

Without artists and designers, human existence would lack purpose, joy, and sanity. Who designs and constructs the websites for both small businesses and big corporations? Who creates the content you see on TV and in movies? Who produces the posters, logos, and brand packaging for your favorite bands? Be a digital media artist and explore your creativity.

Digital Media Careers

  • Videographer

Fine Arts Publication

The Digital Media and English departments have teamed up to create a fine arts publication, featuring student-developed art, creative writing, and poetry. This course is cross-listed as the following:

  • FDMA 2287: Media Production Service
  • ENGL 2996: Special Topics
  • ART 2996: Special Topics

Students enrolled in the Fine Arts Publication not only contribute artwork and writing, they also are responsible for the layout and design of the print book as well as the marketing and promotion of the publication. The course is less like a traditional class and more like a collaborative workplace in which students learn a variety of job duties including copy editing, marketing, graphic design, photography, image editing, art, and creative writing.
