The Digital Media Technologies program at ESU immerses students in the media business and its creative technologies.

Students use today’s creative media technologies to learn how to tell stories and prepare for dynamic media careers. ESU offers a very hands-on program that allows students to experience many aspects of media, from video and TV production to web design, photography, digital graphics, social and interactive media, and new courses and content in esports and virtual reality.

The undergraduate programs provide our students with a wide range of production and creative skills, in multiple subject areas to prepare them with hands on access to the technology they need to become the professionals and leaders in creative media industries.

These software packages are taught on both Windows and Apple computers. We prepare our students to meet the challenges of tomorrow's media industries.

Near the end of their time in DMT, our students create digital portfolios and production reels that showcase their talents and competence in a variety of digital media.
