We are all about creation and collaboration. We teach students to have a critical mind and appreciation for the process by keeping them up-to-date with the latest trends in design and encouraging them to make things happen with solid teamwork.

PATTERN & COLOR: This project tasked students to create individual images that would be tiled to create a pattern. The project shows how small distinct images can be interpreted as texture and how scale can effect how a pattern is perceived by a viewer. The project also required the students to explore applications for their patterns. 


OUR PROGRAM

4-YEAR BACHELOR OF ARTS

CHED ACCREDITATION: G.R. 077, SERIES OF 2015



In our Multimedia Arts Program, we equip our students with up-to-date fundamentals of effective communication design. We give them opportunities to test these theories and principles through collaboration with different programs. They are encouraged to master both traditional and digital art media to foster their development as content creators.

We have extremely hands-on and project-based courses which our students can learn the appreciation for the process of making. We encourage peer-critique—their works to be evaluated by the faculty, their fellow students, and invited creative professionals to foster a level of objectivity and an engaging learning environment.

We believe that our graduates are creative, collaborative individuals who harness their unique visions and taught skills to be competitive practitioners that are high valuable to the industry.
