Digital Media / Internet Services 

The Department of Digital Media is a career program that offers professional certificates and degrees and also provides units that will transfer to related four year bachelor degree programs. The program focuses primarily on designing, developing, and imagining effective and usable web solutions that also respond and function seamlessly on mobile platforms. You will find that your studies in this department will be interdisciplinary in nature. You will learn some code, some design, and you will need to consider what constitutes effective communication when interfacing with various web technologies.

While the program provides a strong technical foundation, we understand that effective web communication is a very human endeavor and is rooted in visual design, written communication, and human interaction with digital technology. Come talk to us about why our students excel at bridging this gap!

We offer classes in visual design for new media, image development & editing, digital illustration, graphic design, web code (HTML 5, CSS 3), interface design, mobile application design and development, and digital communications. Here is a current listing of courses.

Our alumni are a talented group who work in fields such as (but not limited to): UX/UI design and development, graphic design, mobile design - or what is evolving in to responsive web design (RWD), and digital communications. Check out some student testimonials at: Why Choose Us.

For more information please check out the  Digital Media website.

There is a Digital Media Orientation for new and interested students on Wednesday, January 14th, 2015 from 6-8 pm in the Campus Center. Please contact the Dept. Chair if you would like to learn more about the program and classes: jean.mcintosh@wvm.edu
