The broadcast and multimedia industry is rapidly evolving, growing larger and more diverse in content, and new media distribution platforms are showing up on the scene constantly.
Budding professionals in digital media programs have the opportunity to learn skills like writing, audio and video production, and marketing strategies.
A digital media program will teach you the fundamental knowledge and skills that will prepare for success in this industry.
What Can I Do With a Digital Media Diploma?
Getting your diploma is just the first step in your career. The next step is to leverage the skills you’ve learned and the hands-on experience you’ve gained over the course of your education into landing a real-world position working with digital media.
Traditional broadcasting companies and public broadcasters in news, sports and entertainment are – and will most likely continue to be – huge employers of digital media professionals. You’ll almost certainly apply for jobs with them at some point in your career, and working with them allows you to potentially reach a national audience with your work.
At the same time, fully internet-based digital media companies are growing in clout and importance in both news and entertainment. While their audiences tend to be a little smaller, they do exciting work as high-volume, high-quality output is the key to success online.
What Jobs Can You Get with a Digital Media Diploma?
Because this industry is changing so rapidly, with the right skills, experience and self-branding you could very well find yourself to be an excellent applicant for a job that you didn’t expect. For instance, having a thorough education in video production can make you a fantastic salesperson for related products, even if you have little formal training in sales.
Digital media schools provide education in a variety of specializations, including:
- Sports broadcasting
- Radio broadcasting
- Film and video broadcasting
- Video production
- Audio production
- Hispanic media broadcasting
- Media sales and marketing
