Graphics and Multimedia Lab

The graphics lab, located on the ground floor of Stouffer Hall, provides a variety of software applications, black-and-white and color printing capabilities, color scanners, and a negative film scanner. The facility is used for instruction in graphics, as well as multimedia production. Software applications available in the lab include Macromedia Fireworks, Flash, Dreamweaver, Freehand, Director, and Authorware. Also available are Adobe® Photoshop® and Adobe® Illustrator® among others, the industry standard for multimedia production.

The courses taught in this lab include COMM 240 Communication Graphics, COMM 340 Advanced  Communication Graphics, COMM 440 Multimedia Production, COMM 447 Animation (pictured) and COMM 471 Electronic Imaging. These courses have enrollment limits of twenty students, which allows each individual time to experiment and receive personal attention from the faculty. There are ample “open lab” times for students to work on assignments and/or do creative work that is of personal interest.

The Communications Media Department has begun to offer courses in electronic game design and development. Students explore game design, the process of game creation, gaming technology, and the psychology of gaming. Students also learn how to create industry standard designs and deliverables for electronic games.
