A New Major for New Media

August 01, 2004 | Tara Jeske

A new major offered by Walla Walla College's technology department takes graphic design to another level. While graphic design is for the print medium, the major in new media imaging will cover emerging media technologies. If you want to make games, create animation, make short films or do Web design, this is the curriculum for you, says Linda Nelson, technology department chair.

The new major is designed to prepare students for a rapidly changing industry. The major will include existing courses and is modeled after similar programs at other universities. Classes include programming for business, video, computer-aided drafting, graphic communication, three-dimensional modeling, animation, special effects and advanced Web page design classes.
