Creative Media Degrees Ready

Community college students who aspire to digital and creative media careers will have an easier time transitioning their coursework to a four-year institution, thanks to new articulation agreements with UH-West Oahu.

Students from any of the state’s seven community colleges, including Leeward CC, who have completed at least 60 credits of 100/200-level coursework in digital media are eligible to transfer to UHWO, which offers two degree pathways in the program: a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities or a Bachelor of Applied Science, both with concentrations in Creative Media.

UHWO’s program will be served this fall with the grand opening of its dedicated Creative Media lab.

Four new faculty members also have been hired, including an artist-in-residence.

Students can apply for the fall 2014 semester until July 1. Application deadline for the spring 2015 semester is set for Oct. 1.
