The Art of Storytelling in the 21st Century

What makes a good story? Part of it is definitely how you decide to tell that story, and today there are more ways than ever. Digital movies, computer-generated graphics, multimedia, websites, video games, mobile apps, and yes, even print. We’ll show you how!

Confederation College’s Interactive Media Development three-year diploma program helps you tell a better story, no matter what the medium. Courses cover every aspect of storytelling in the digital age teaching you how to use the latest tools and techniques. You’ll learn about graphic design, web development including CSS and HTML, digital photography, sound & motion, 3D Graphics, interactive media communications, portfolio development, and entrepreneurship. In the sixth semester, your media placement will provide you with opportunities to work elsewhere in Canada or possibly internationally, so you get the real-world skills and experience to help build your own portfolio and find a job after graduation.
