The Digital Media Certificate is a 27-credit program offered through the Art Department. The program is designed to provide students with a strong foundation in design principles and working with contemporary digital media. Students explore the visual, critical, and practical aspects of digital media as currently employed in the development of web sites, photography, video, and 3D computer applications. Course work produced by students may contribute towards the creation of a digital art portfolio. For most students the program requires a minimum of three semesters to complete.

Gainful employment disclosure

The US Department of Education requires colleges and universities to disclose certain information for any financial aid eligible program that “prepares students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation.” At GCC this includes our career-ready certificate programs. This information includes program costs; occupations that the program prepares students to enter; on time completion rate; and for programs with a minimum number of graduates in the most recent academic year: the number of students who completed the program, the number of students who complete the program on time, and the median federal and private loan debt incurred by graduates.
