Program Narrative
Multimedia production involves the creation of audio, video and interactive applications (including games) for the Internet. Northampton's specialized diploma in Multimedia is a six-credit course of study designed for those with previous media and/or computer experience who wish to broaden and update their skills by becoming proficient in multimedia production and interactive CD/DVD ROM authoring.

The diploma program consists of two courses taught in the College's state-of-the-art multimedia lab. You'll have extensive opportunities for hands-on instruction using the latest hardware and software. Because multimedia production is both a technical and an artistic process, we stress aesthetics, creativity, and design in addition to the practical understanding of computer technology.
