About the Digital Photography & Filmmaking Curriculum

Our Digital Photography and Filmmaking certificate programs combine curriculum in photography and filmmaking theory and related software. As digital cameras and software become more sophisticated, so does the tendency for digital photography and filmmaking to merge. It’s not uncommon for a professional photographer to also have videography skills and vice versa.

Digital Photography Curriculum

Photography students should take 55801 Photography with a Digital Camera as early in their curriculum as possible as it is a prerequisite to all other Photography courses. For equipment requirements, see the downloadable flyers for each Digital Photography certificate. For additional equipment guidance, register for class 55752 Digital Cameras: Buying the Right Camera or contact the program supervisor for advisement.

Digital Filmmaking Curriculum

Filmmaking students should take 55911 Digital Videography: An Introduction as early in their curriculum as possible. Combining this certificate with Apple Certification in Final Cut Pro is an option.
