Certificate in Digital Media Production

Master the essentials of the digital media marketplace—without the time necessary for a graduate degree.

Careers often require additional education to move ahead, but not everyone has the time and resources to earn more degrees. That's where the 12-credit Graduate Certificate in Digital Media Production program comes in.

While this is an independent program of study, this project-oriented certificate can facilitate the transition to further study through UB's M.S. in Interaction Design and Information Architecture program.

The Certificate in Digital Media Production program is for graphic designers, writers, editors, publication managers and other communications professionals who want to do advanced design and creative work in emerging media.

You will:

  • develop a solid foundation in Web production and publication management and garner expertise in interactive multimedia and application development
  • explore information design and delivery, usability testing, production techniques and standards, and design aesthetics
  • be prepared to work as a multimedia designer, webmaster, scripter/programmer or publication manager.


Classes are offered evenings and weekends, and some courses are offered online.
