• Integrated Media Curriculum


  • Media and technology impact every industry and profession. It is the interrelationship between media and technology that is at the heart of MHCC's Integrated Media program. Our majors span four discipline areas: Broadcasting, Graphic Design, Photography and Video. Our focus is 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. Students further polish their skills by taking advantage of one of the many for-credit internships available at regional production houses, studios and agencies. Students who complete an Associate of Applied Science degree can continue their education 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, Laika and locally produced television series.

    Please see the program area descriptions for the Integrated Media degrees below for more details.
