No . . . not at all. You are not required to take the Digital Media Technology core requirements prior to enrolling in one of our certificate options.
Our certificate offerings were designed as stand-a-lone programs that allow a person who already has some training or a prior degree to gain additional skills in one of the concentrations we offer.
For instance, a person with a bachelor’s degree who wish to edit video may enroll in our Digital Video Production certificate and complete the courses required. A few courses have prerequisites, and these must be completed first, but generally, a certificate program may be completed in one or two semesters if a student takes two or three courses each semester.
