Design a career that works for you
It all starts with a passion for communication and the desire to use current interactive technologies to enrich the ways in which we communicate. Today, multimedia is often referred to as “the new media”, but it’s only `new’ in the sense that technology has given us new opportunities for communicating, both verbally and visually.
Science fiction writer Arthur C. Clark once made the observation that for those who don’t grasp the underlying technology, any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. Multimedia content creators are the masters of that kind of magic. Behind those moments of magic that you experience on a variety of devices every day, there are real people with real, industry-level skills in web and interactive programming, layout and design, 2-D and 3-D animation, and video and audio editing, and these are the people who routinely make the magic happen – on the largest stage ever conceived!
Along with skill-development in new media technologies, you will learn how to identify and develop commercially viable ideas, pitch your ideas to employers or prospective clients, and plan and manage projects. You will be given an opportunity to independently research and develop a capstone project in one of the following areas of applied concentration: web and interactive programming, video and motion graphics, or e-learning technologies. In your final semester, you will gain hands-on industry experience through a 120-hour practicum.
Multimedia Production is right for you if you:
- think logically and abstractly
- pay close attention to details
- like to work alone or as part of a team in a creative environment
- have an active interest in keeping up with technological advances.
- can think logically and concentrate for long periods of time
- organize information effectively
- communicate ideas clearly in person and on paper.
Program your future
If you have the kind of mind that moves quickly from the `mystifying’ experience itself to wondering how it was done and wanting to do it yourself, then the Multimedia Production Program at Lethbridge College could put you on the path to a career in the new media industry.
There is a required practicum component to this program. The College dictates the legal terms and conditions governing the practicum experience. Failure by the student to accept by way of legal contract and abide by these terms and conditions will result in non-completion of the program.
In your final semester, you will gain hands-on industry experience through a 120-hour internship.
This is a Mobile Learning Program that requires students to supply their own device with required minimum specifications. Go to www.lethbridgecollege.ca/mobilelearning for additional information.
