21 credits
The Certificate in Creative Media is designed for students who plan to earn a bachelor’s degree in Animation & Computer Games or Interactive Media.The Certificate provides creative individuals with the art and design training needed to explore and express ideas using leading-edge technology as well as interactive scripting. The certificate focuses on 3D visual art production for the film, broadcast, and computer game development industries. The certificate provides a balance of technical skills and aesthetic development, culminating in a portfolio-building project targeted to the student’s chosen specialization.

Students can take the required courses at any UH Community College and/or at UH Mānoa. A minimum of 50% of 12 required credits for the certificate must be taken at Leeward Community College. At least 6 credits of the 21 required credits for the Certificate would also apply as general education core requirements for the Associate in Arts (AA) degree. With proper planning, the Certificate can be used as electives for the AA degree and will not exceed the maximum credits needed for the AA.

Students planning to transfer to a bachelor’s degree program in either Animation & Computer Games or Interactive Media should obtain the application program requirements sheet for the Transfer College or university and see a counselor for academic advising.
