(HARLINGEN, Texas) – Computers have changed the way we look at different forms of media. Because the internet never sleeps, neither do the opportunities to learn about the field.
Digital Media Design at Texas State Technical College offers a hands-on approach to this evolving area of study while also ensuring that students understand the tools of the trade.
Instructor Garnet Gaither discussed the technical side of the program, as well as what students can expect to learn during their time at TSTC.
What will students gain from the Digital Media Design program at TSTC?
Students can expect to learn how to create graphic design-based media, as well as how to design abstractly and traditionally. They will also learn what makes good and bad design, and designing for visual electronic media and printed media, among other things.
What makes studying this program at TSTC unique?
Our students have hands-on access to a computer, photography and videography equipment, and even 3D printing. They will also learn firsthand with cameras, scanners, plotters, and a host of other graphically related equipment.
What do you enjoy most about teaching at TSTC?
I enjoy seeing my students effectively put to use the things they have learned and be creative with what they’ve learned. It is also enjoyable when I hear from them about their careers many years later.
What advice would you give to a student who is interested in learning Digital Media Design?
Be sure you understand what the field is all about, and have dedication.
