Integrated Media

  • Media and technology impact every industry and profession. The interrelationship between media and technology is at the heart of MHCC’s unique Integrated Media programs. Our majors span four discipline areas: broadcasting, graphic design, photography and video. We focus not just on careers anchored in the digital arts but also on providing an education that is a synthesis of cutting-edge technology, creative mastery and critical thinking. Many classes are organized into interdisciplinary teams that mirror professional studio and production environments. All students have opportunities to write, record and edit audio, capture and manipulate digital images, use graphics to communicate ideas, build narrative sequences for film, and produce web sites.
