Important Program Notes:

Scheduling may vary per campus locations. You are encouraged to register for courses in accord with your main campus scheduling.

The Video Production and Editing Associates of Applied Science (AAS) Degree is valued with higher regard as it requires more education to obtain than a certificate. As such, it is recommended that interested students declare the AAS Degree as the overall goal. Students declaring the AAS Degree will also complete the Fundamentals of Multimedia Certificate as well as a certificate in the chosen focus area by the time of graduation.
