Somerset, Ky. (June 6, 2016) – A new degree program at Somerset Community College (SCC) will focus on teaching students how to create digital content, such as online and print graphics, web design and digital photography.

Simpson noted that recent surveys of Visual Communication students and area graphic design/multimedia businesses showed a strong support for the new degree.
The Visual Communication: Multimedia program offers students a full-range of technical classes. Courses include instruction in the foundational elements of design; as well as hands-on classes for the most widely used Adobe design programs, including Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Acrobat.
Courses are taught by Cindy Burton, lead instructor, and Greg Kitzmiller, adjunct faculty. Both instructors have worked in the visual communication industry and have years of experience in online instruction.
Successful students earn the AAS Degree; a diploma in Multimedia; and certificates for Digital Imaging Assistant, Digital Photography, Digital Production Assistant and Digital Design. They are qualified for employment in an array of computer-related fields, including: advertising design, creative direction, marketing and promotions, graphic design, brand management, printing, website management, multimedia development, freelance design and many others.
