When and how can I check out cameras and other equipment?
Only students who are enrolled in courses that require equipment may check out items relevant to those courses. For example, students in Video Production 2 (DIGM 3374) may check out video cameras, lighting, and other related video equipment. The equipment check out form and more information can be found on the equipment page.
What career opportunities are available when I graduate?
Digital media is huge. What we hear from industry leaders is that their future employees must be able to see the big picture and deeply understand the underlying concepts of all digital media. Basic tasks in graphics are becoming cheaper and easier to outsource every day. The best opportunities lie with those who can put it all together to meet their customers' communications needs, quickly incorporate new technologies and skills, and manage media. Our industry is on the cusp of a transformation, but job titles and traditional corporate structure have not caught up with these changes. When you research positions in digital media, job titles may imply specific roles, but these positions often expand into a broader career in digital media. Some possible careers to search for include "printing careers", "packaging design careers", "video careers", "digital publishing", and "eCommerce".
