Knowing how to operate a video camera is just one of the many tools you'll need to be successful in this field. Your Digital Media Production courses will also help you to prepare to write for many different types of media as well as new techniques and creative strategies for distributing that media.
As a service-oriented college, Production majors focus on telling stories that help others. Both in the classroom and through Mount Media, we practice by producing media for nonprofits and small businesses. Why is that important? Empathy is key to being a good communicator. These projects allow us to dig into the community and, as a result, make us better producers.
To conclude your time in the program, you will take a capstone course that puts to use all of the skills you’ve developed on a project of your choice. It not only adequately wraps up your time in the program, but also provides great material for your portfolio.
Digital Media Production majors are highly encouraged to work with our Career Center to find an internship that grows their skills. Past Production majors have interned at organizations like WABC TV Sports, the Today show, MTV Networks, the New York Mets, CBS 48 Hours, Fox News, and more. Some of our students have even taken on production crew positions for independent feature films being produced in the Hudson Valley.
After graduation, your professors will use their connections to help guide you towards your dream job. With the growing digital landscape, you have lots of possibilities! Production majors are particularly qualified to take on positions in television, film, and video production; advertising; marketing; photography and videography; and more.
