Over the next few weeks the catalog website will be transitioning to the look of the new college website (northampton.edu). The catalog URLs and pages WILL NOT change so you will not need to worry about any links to the catalog and bookmarks becoming broken. Thank you for your patience.

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.
