Digital Imaging and Design Certificate Program

This certificate program is being updated and is not being offered at the present.

The Digital Imaging Certificate program incorporates a series of courses designed to develop an understanding of the core concepts, visual language/theory and practical methods of photography in the 21st century including digital capture, image editing and manipulation, methods of publishing and delivering images in both web and print, high-quality ink-jet printing and professional methods. It combines theory with hands-on applications in the computer lab and field in order to provide a broad knowledge of the skills necessary for digital imaging and production. At the close of the program, all participants produce a creative portfolio, which is planned and implemented in consultation with a faculty advisor.

Each participant in the digital imaging program selects a faculty advisor from amongst the core PNM faculty to provide guidance and ongoing feedback. The Certificate program insures a solid and sequential learning experience that leads to a high level of professional skill upon completion.
