A love of video, photography, art, and computers is a great foundation for contributing to an organization as a digital media producer. Advertising agencies, marketing firms, the film industry, businesses, government, and education all need effective communicators to craft and target messages for internal and external audiences.

An important link in this system is the digital media professional, who prepares the visuals and audio used in successful media projects. They are responsible for the operation and maintenance of equipment used in creating videos, advertisements, presentations, and other forms of communications. You may be involved in preparing video, digital photography, animation, illustration, and motion graphics for various formats, including the web.

Western provides hands-on instruction in industry-leading applications and equipment. Graduates may find employment with television stations, video production houses, educational settings, industry training departments, and government agencies.
