    COORDINATE MAJOR IN DIGITAL MEDIA PRODUCTON

    New Orleans is quickly becoming a major center for Digital Media Production, particularly film. Currently, there are unparalleled opportunities for students to become a part of this fast growing industry. The mission of the coordinate undergraduate major in Digital Media Production is to educate our students in the art, craft, and technology of film, television, video, animation and sound production. Our new program offers intensive, hands-on production experience, coupled with a broad exposure to the liberal arts. Our goals and objectives include the development of individual talent and skills within a collaborative working environment. We want to encourage our students to become creative and thoughtful practitioners in the world of media. We will also support a strong internship program offering a wide range of options for pre-professional experience and provide venues for the presentation and promotion of student work.
