The Center for New Media offers both traditional 16-week college classes and short, intensive classes in animation, creative and technical writing, digital photography, e-commerce, graphic design, programming, and web/multimedia design and development for both the traditional college student and the professional graphic designer or web developer. We've built a reputation growing the Graphic Communications department from primarily classes teaching layout and graphic design for print-based production. Reacting to the demand for skills needed to get jobs designing and developing web sites we've partnered with other departments at Kalamazoo Valley Community College.
