The digital media associate degree program combines existing courses within the Digital Animation and Game Design (DAGD), Digital Media Software Engineering (DMSE) and Television and Digital Media Production (TDMP) programs into an introductory and exploratory digital media aas degree within the School of Education. The digital media associates degree program also allows students to complete their general education requirements while enrolling in college courses from across the digital media curriculum. Upon completion of the digital media two-year degree, students will be better positioned for success if they transfer to the Ferris Grand Rapids campus to complete Bachelor degrees in DAGD or DMSE while exposing all students to a variety of media, better positioning them as they choose their specialty.
This 2 + 2 degree in digital media is designed to provide students a smooth transition into any of the three digital media bachelor degrees within the school, although completing the digital media associates degree prior to entry into the bachelor programs is not necessary.
This Associate of Science Degree is offered to students on the Big Rapids or Grand Rapids campuses of Ferris State University. It is ideal for students who are unsure of the specific major within the School of Digital Media that they wish to pursue, as it is comprised of digital media courses from across the digital media associates degree program offerings in the School. It is also a good choice for students who wish to complete the DAGD or DMSE degree, but wish to start on the Big Rapids campus. Seeking to develop both the creative spirit as well as the technical know-how to deliver stories effectively, students engage with industry standard software and equipment through project-oriented course work to learn their craft. In each major this applied approach to learning is coupled with small class sizes, internships with industry leaders, a proven track record of success and faculty who bring the perfect blend of education and industry experience.
