Digital Media Production Minor
The Digital Media Production minor is devoted to providing students with hands-on experience in the creation of visual screen media.
Being an effective communicator in the 21st century requires not only excellent written and oral communication skills but also the ability to employ contemporary media technology to tell stories and convey ideas to different audiences through various media channels.
The Digital Media Production minor delivers a valuable skill set to two groups:
- Those interested in careers on the production side of media industries
- Those in any field in which the ability to express their ideas in interesting and effective ways will help them achieve their career goals
Students in this program will learn about studio and single-camera production, editing and post-production techniques, and writing for different media outlets and audiences. Coursework emphasizes both team production and development of individual projects.
The Digital Media Production minor appeals to a variety of majors, including communication, English, and visual and performing arts.
With its emphasis on long-form production, the minor allows students to tell stories creatively while developing their skills with digital technology.
Stonehill recently invested in extensive upgrades to its television studio and control room as well as added a new Mac classroom geared toward nonlinear editing. Students in the Digital Media Production minor will be able to maximize the potential of these renovated and new spaces.
Students will have the opportunity to augment their coursework with internships, possibly in New York or Los Angeles, and culminate their experience by producing their own short film.
Many of our LA interns are returning to Hollywood post-graduation for positions in the entertainment industry. While many have launched careers in the promotional side of the business, the Digital Media Production minor allows others to pursue careers on the production end.
