MHCC’s Integrated Media is an interdisciplinary course of study providing an in-depth comprehensive aesthetic and technical foundation in digital media. Coursework balances theory classes with hands-on production classes taught in the college’s excellent facilities: video, broadcasting and photography studios, classrooms and computer labs equipped with the latest design software and production equipment. Students gain valuable work experience by collaborating on a variety of real-world projects and taking advantage of one of the many for-credit internships available at regional firms and agencies. Students who complete an Associate of Applied Science degree can continue their educations at a four-year university or seek immediate employment. The region’s demand for creative talent has offered jobs and internship opportunities at a diverse range of companies including Nike, Columbia Sportswear, the Trailblazers, Laika and locally produced television series.
Students must elect to enroll in one of the four Integrated Media programs: broadcasting, graphic design, photography or video. Descriptions detailing the curriculum of these programs follow.
Students must have a current record on file and meet the minimum proficiency level in reading, writing and mathematics. Proficiency can be satisfied by placement into MTH060, WR115 and RD115 on the MHCC College Placement Test (CPT) or by completion of MTH020, WR090 and RD090 (or equivalent transfer courses demonstrated through official transcripts on file at MHCC).
Call 503-491-7678 for information about taking the College Placement Test.
Students can simply register on a first come, first served basis for fall term in late May when the open registration period begins. Wait lists will be established for each option as the courses fill to capacity.
Requirement for Continuing into Winter Term
Students must have the consent of their IM program adviser and meet the proficiencies of the program classes to continue into the second term of Integrated Media courses. Students will be provided with clear performance expectations when classes start in September.
