Academic Subject Certificate in Creative Media

Creative Media Academic Subject Certificate, 21 credits

Designed for students who plan to earn a bachelor’s degree in Animation & Computer Games or Interactive Media. You’ll receive the art and design training needed to explore and express ideas using leading-edge technology as well as interactive scripting. You’ll focus on 3D 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 your chosen specialization.

You can take the required courses at any UH Community College and/or at UH Manoa. At least 12 of the 21 required credits for the certificate must be taken at Leeward CC. At least 6 credits of the 21 required credits for the Certificate would also apply as general education core requirements for the 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.
