UNCA's new media program is designed to prepare students to go on to a graduate school. Some preparation is made throughtout the student's tenure to produce a portfolio. This portfolio can be used to get an intership or to apply to graduate school. This program should in no way substitute for hands-on, "real world" experience the kind that employers are looking for.
The NM degree is designed to give the student the basic design and programming experience to allow the student to fulfill one's destiny on one's own. A list of graduate schools are kept in the main office. Appointments can be made (within reason) to see the master list.
