The U.S. Department of Labor projects that by 2018 ninety-one percent of information services and related electronic communications jobs will require at least some post-secondary education. The Digital Media certificates prepare students to compete successfully in the new economy, helping them develop business and entrepreneurial skills.

Students must demonstrate college-level proficiency in composition, reading, and mathematical skills before entering this program. Skills in these areas may affect the sequence of courses in which students can enroll and may also extend the time required to complete this program. See the Academic and Placement Testing  section.

The Digital Media program and certificates are offered at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs, and Spring Valley at Glenwood Springs. Some courses may be available at Colorado Mountain College in Aspen. For details consult a Colorado Mountain College advisor.
