About the Program
This course requires the use of Adobe Creative Cloud software programs: Photoshop, Illustrator, Audition and Premiere Pro. MMT students use the software installed on our MAC lab computers and iPads. In Multimedia Technology, students learn to develop and communicate ideas clearly, and effectively across many media platforms from typography and design, photography, audio and video to web digital media. Students will create and manage a blog where they will post multimedia assignments and interact with peer students.
In our program, students develop digital media with purposeful design that emphasizes the story. This requires critical thinking, literacy and communication proficiency with a heavy emphasis on group interaction and collaboration, including peer-critiques. This leads to early success and self-confidence as evidenced by the many awards and acclaim earned by MMT students. See Success Stories for specific examples.
Save time and money by starting to build your career now. Identifying interests, developing talent and pursuing ambitions can make you highly marketable in industry or help your college application to stand-out. Just as important, it increases personal motivation and potential success. If you have the drive to create and express yourself, and love exploring new technologies, then Multimedia Technology may be right for you.
Create a Career PORTFOLIO
One valuable tool that can help you get ready for college and beyond is a career portfolio—a collection of items that document your achievements both in and out of school, assembled in one convenient package. MBIT Students have a distinct advantage to compile a portfolio of work and experiences that differentiate them from traditional students when applying to college or entering the workforce.
In Communications, practical experience is often more important than classwork. Often, employers aren’t willing to pay for on-the-job training to prepare employees for the day-to-day requirements of their profession. In fact, gaining fundamentals of a career through internships and career and technical education (CTE) gives the job candidate at an advantage that often leads to permanent employment.
