Launch your creative career
To call yourself an expert in the field of arts and design requires both technical knowledge and practical experience. At CIIT, our Media and Visual Arts strand can serve as a stepping stone on your pathway to a career in the media and creative industry.
We take a broad approach in providing you with industry-standard education. With a unique and specialized curriculum, we aim to build your skill set. From graphic design to film production to digital photography, you have the opportunity to create art in so many forms.
In this program, you can push the boundaries of your own artistry. There’s an undeniable value in diversity. Our students are encouraged to uniquely express themselves not only in their work but in the community we provide for them.
Students will study seven to ten ( 7 – 10) subjects per semester. General academic subjects will be delivered via lecture while specialized subjects will be taught through a lab-based format. For the Media and Visual Arts Strand, students will study specialized subjects such as:
*All classes are taught through online instruction and recorded so that students may access them at their own convenience. Synchronous lecture classes do not exceed one (1) hour. Labs may go beyond one (1) hour as these classes focus on more practical lessons and thus, are more hands-on.

In your first year, you will learn basic techniques and tools for drawing as well as how artworks are adapted into digital translations. An understanding of general elements and principles of design will be developed and will also be applied through photography.

I enjoyed and learned a lot from CIIT SHS and so I trust that CIIT College of Arts and Technology will be just as great if not more.
Juliana Andrea Santiago
I know that CIIT will guide me in pursuing film, graphic design and doing arts.
Since I've studied in CIIT SHS for almost 2 years now and it has been a great experience where I really learned a lot about what I need to know as an artist and more things that made me grow as a person. So I would safely assume that the college program would continue to do that and maybe even more.
