Allen's associate degree in Production Media prepares students for successful transfer to university study by providing a solid foundation in graphic design, web design, programming, and coding. With continued study and a degree in Production Media, students' career goals may focus toward design, with careers in web design, graphic design, interior design, or advertising; programming in the areas of software, game development, web development and app development; or production, with work in illustration, digital photography, or fine art. Students seeking a degree or certificate in Production Media will demonstrate proficiency in design principles, design processes, theory of design, history of design, and contemporary design practice.
The degree track is a sequence of recommended graphics and programming courses and general education courses designed to meet most technology degree requirements for the first two years of study for Kansas Board of Regents universities, and for tech institute and private university art degrees in Kansas, so that students may transfer into the university at the junior level. Graduation with this degree helps to assure that successful transition.
