Outside of the Classroom
Behind the scenes, yes please! In addition to time spent in the creative classroom, New Media Academy students have a VIP backstage pass to visit businesses that rely heavily on new media technologies success. These rare behind the “green screen” experiences offer exposure to a variety of future career options within the field, often sparking new interests and confirming students’ college and career goals.
