    Description

    Careers

    Opportunities in digital media technology are continually growing. Jobs that currently use digital media technology include technical writer, Web page designer, computer graphics designer, librarian, news reporter, art director, animation effects programmer, electronic sound effects producer, computer game developer, photographer, educational technologist and videographer. Many people in these fields are self-employed consultants and entrepreneurs, while others work for a wide range of businesses and industries.

    Academics

    Many degree programs provide the opportunity to study visual communications with computer graphics or to study computer programming, but few offer the opportunity to study both of these areas. That is what makes K-State Salina’s digital media option unique. For example, digital media students who combine an interest in designing computer graphics with an interest in computer programming will propel themselves into an elite segment of the workforce. There are not enough people who understand both visual design and computer programming to keep up with market demand. Those who master both skill sets can find themselves working in cutting-edge industries, including entertainment, education, sales and new media companies.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
