Digital Arts & New Media is an exciting new program that prepares students for a variety of university studies. A dynamic mix of theory and practice gives students a chance to explore and find their passion, while sharpening their creative abilities and developing a comprehensive understanding of the importance of visual culture.
Our teachers are accomplished artists who have the expertise needed to foster the artistic expression in each student. The courses have been designed to develop communication skills using convergent media arts, photography, 3D modeling and animation. Through experimental creative projects, students will explore new media and develop critical thinking.
The graduates of Digital Arts and New Media are prepared for university studies and future careers in the Arts and Media. They can apply to such programs as Bachelor of Arts, Computational Arts, Convergent Media Arts, Animation (Film or Gaming), Industrial Design, Arts Education and Theatre Design. Digital Arts & New Media will equip students with the artistic, technical and academic competencies to meet the challenges of their future.
Film & New Media is a pre-university program which prepares students for a wide variety of university studies. This exciting mix of theory and practice gives students a chance to explore and find their passion, while sharpening their creative abilities, critical thinking, written and spoken communications, and developing a comprehensive understanding of the importance of visual culture.
Students will progressively master the fundamentals of writing, shooting, recording sound, and editing, whether in fiction film, television, or any number of new multi-media platforms. In the journalism and documentary courses, they will apply these skills with real-life topics while learning to communicate ideas and information in a coherent and persuasive way. Our digital lab will offer a chance to experiment in new territories of gaming, app design, special effects, and animation. Theoretical courses will foster critical thinking through subjects that vary from film history to the analysis of contemporary visual culture.
In our media-saturated world, visual literacy is more important than ever, and our graduates are able to successfully transfer their skills into areas such as advertising, marketing, journalism, radio, photography, television, film, app design, computer gaming, and more. Graduates can look to the future as media professionals, artists, teachers, music producers, television personalities, actors, special effects designers, and public relations consultants – almost any field requiring an understanding of the creative process, self-motivation, and project management abilities.
