Let us inspire you and prepare you for careers in the digital media landscape

Media Arts@SBCC was put together in 2000 and was called Multimedia Arts and Technology. At its core was a curriculum based on instruction in digital media and communications. This included: web, cd­rom, 3D, sound, video and digital art and employed such softwares as; Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Director, Avid, Maya and more.

 

Since then, video and sound split off and formed a new department. Now, we focus on digital art, web design, web communication, interactivity, 3D and gaming.
