Concentration Options

Digital Communications
Game Programming

The Associate Degree of Science in Digital Media Technology offers three pathways. Core computer technology courses are required of all students. The program features concentration options to allow the students to achieve proficiency in their choice of occupational field.  The Game Programming Concentration is dedicated to game theory and design, and advances into higher level programming courses to produce interactive games and simulations. The Digital Communications Concentration will offer a variety of courses in graphic design, web design and animation.  The choice of a concentration will allow the students to gain depth of knowledge and hands-on experience in a chosen discipline. This will enable the student to align their skills with industry standards for employment, as well as offer options for transfer to a four-year program. The program also offers a general path of study that allows for a selection of courses from the concentration areas. The program will require a 1 Credit Portfolio Capstone course.  Courses will be offered on a rotating semester basis. Students should work with their advisors to plan course selections to optimize program completion time

Requirements

Technical Standards
Students who enroll in the program should comprehend the English language, both oral and written, and should have the ability to communicate effectively to gather and convey information. They should be able to sit at a computer workstation and stay on task for extended periods of time, and be able to replicate teacher-demonstrated procedures. They should apply principles, concepts, and procedures for industry standards, behave appropriately in both self-directed and shared learning environments, and perform algebraic calculations.

Transfer Credit Policy
In addition to Great Bay transfer credit policies, transfer of courses in Computer Technologies more than five years old will be evaluated by the program coordinator on an individual basis.
