The Digital Media Production Certificate program provides exposure to up-to-date hardware, equipment and digital software to learn and practice basic video production, TV production, audio recording/podcasting and editing skills.  It is intended for individuals with no or partial media experience who wish to experience hands-on work in the applicable fields of radio/podcasting, television or video production. Students can practice necessary skills for potential employment in various digital media agencies, stations, and social media platforms - especially those that require work in either on-camera/on-mic and/or off-camera/behind-the-scenes. Classes are highly practical and provide significant hands-on opportunities, creative real-world projects, and building a professional media portfolio. Additional job placement recommendations, networking opportunities, transferable experiences, extra-curricular media clubs, and internship connections are also integral to all Media courses at MCC.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Implement creative and interpretive skills through project-based work while scripting, producing, and editing original material for radio, television, video, and social media. 
  • Identify and distinguish specific mass media industries, media job roles, and required media skills.
  • Plan, generate, and edit written and oral materials for professional media projects.
