No matter what the industry, every organization has a myriad of needs for quality visual media content. TU’s digital media program with a professional track in photography and design prepares students for the constantly changing field of visual media, giving them foundational knowledge and skills and allowing them to develop their own creative style and artistry.

Students learn to solve a variety of visual communication problems through the use of multiple tools and media. They also develop a combination of visual, technical and business skills so they may be prepared for the changing demands of our multimedia communications environment.

Students use professional photography equipment, as well as advanced photography and graphic design and editing software, preparing them for careers in editorial, advertising, corporate communications and digital imaging. Students can lay the foundations for their own future content creation, design or photography business or serve as consultants or freelancers for larger businesses and organizations.
