In the unique field of digital arts, what matters is being able to show what you can do. You can show your skills most effectively through your portfolio.
In the final quarter of the program, in addition to your normal course load, you'll work on your portfolio. Using what you've learned and projects developed in the program to date, you'll develop a portfolio, which covers print, web, and interactive DVD projects. Combine that with UC San Diego's brand-name certificates and doors will open.
Business and Marketing
Following successful completion of the Graphic & Web Design, Mobile Applications Development, or Video & Editing Program, students will have acquired extensive design knowledge and applied it to numerous professional-level production projects. Throughout the program, instructors and guest speakers will teach basic business principles and techniques for marketing and self-promotion. Business strategies, copyright and legal issues, marketing, and job placement strategies are covered. The ongoing evolution of portfolios, reels, and presentation skills continue to be refined while interfacing with various circles of the design community.
Upon successful completion of these certificates, students will:
- Possess professional level skill sets and be prepared for employment with the refinement of portfolios and presentation skills
- Understand business/marketing practices as uniquely applied to the digital designer
- Take part in internships / externships (optional)
