needs of many students within our region. These specialized program options represent a variety of career and academic interest areas and are

designed as a distinct “mini-curriculum” to meet minimum vocational skills.

foundation of skills for entry level work in graphic and interactive design, multimedia, and video production.

Admission Requirements:
