About the Program

Bachelor of Science in Digital Media Technologies

The Digital Media Technologies Department (DMT) prepares students to create media through a blend of hands-on teaching and applied theory of digital media. Ten foundation and production courses in interactive media, video and television production, graphics, audio, photography, web design, animation and media theory are required. Advanced level elective courses offer students specialization in media production and design or exploration into new and emerging technologies.

Our students use industry standard equipment, including a six camera 4k TV studio, audio recording studio, portrait photography studio,multiple computer labs with powerful Mac and PC computers, 4k video cameras and all the production equipment needed to succeed in the major.

Student-run and DMT faculty-supervised television and photography clubs are available. Students from the Television Club and DMT are engaged in media productions that support local athletic, non-profits and other agencies. Productions are aired over the ESU Warrior TV channel and Blue Ridge cable television.


The DMT internship provides a unique learning experience that allows students to use the knowledge they have obtained in the classroom in a real-world setting. The internship experience takes place in a professional environment where the course work competencies are applied and refined. In planning for an internship, students are advised to discuss career goals, qualifications and potential internships with their academic adviser and department faculty. Ideally students should have completed basic and advanced courses in the media production area in which they plan to intern (12 credits). A 2.75 grade average in DMT courses, no incompletes in DMT courses, and faculty approval are required before enrolling in an internship. The internship application process must be supervised by the student's DMT adviser.
