Program Mission: The Video and Web Production AAS-T degree educates and mentors students in the tools and techniques required to produce and distribute videos in the digital age. We prepare students to be well versed in a variety of software so that they can produce videos in both small and large-scale production companies, as well as take on projects in a wide variety of genres including corporate video, documentary, narrative, music videos, and commercials.

The curriculum has been updated to reflect the growing synergy between web design and video production as organizations seek to add compelling video content to their websites and develop a social media presence. Students will learn digital storytelling and web design principles, and develop strong video and web production skills through software such as Final Cut Studio, After Effects, Dreamweaver and Flash. Video content distribution through different digital formats will be explored.

  • be prepared to obtain an entry-level position in their field
