Digital Media

CSM's Digital Media (DGME) program is training the next generation of media-makers in graphic design, web design, television broadcasting, audio and video production, and web programming. The DGME curriculum combines former college courses in Broadcast & Electronic Media, Graphic Design and Web/Multimedia. These curricular changes mirror changes in the media industry where the areas of broadcast, multimedia, and graphics are merging in a variety of ways.

The Digital Media program offers opportunities for students to earn Associate degrees, to transfer to four-year institutions, to earn Certificates of Achievement and Certificates of Specialization, and to gain knowledge and skills needed in the workplace. At the heart of the program is the commitment to provide students with real-life, hands-on experiences that will prepare them for immediate employment and for upper division coursework. A practical curriculum offers real-world experience with current software applications and digital equipment. 

The Digital Media program is housed in College Center Building 10 in a new and exciting state-of-the-art facility. The Digital Media facility includes smart classrooms, featuring the latest in audio/visual technology, the Digital Media Center with Apple iMac computers, and a supervised equipment center for students to borrow digital camcorders, digital recorders, and microphones for their projects.

The facility also houses five recording studios available to digital audio and electronic music students. Studio A, a professional-level rental and instructional space, has a 400 square-foot live room, separate control room, and isolation booth with a baby grand piano. Studio B is smaller and features a control room and isolation booth suitable for voiceover recording.
