training for the digital world
The Isaacson School for New Media at
Colorado Mountain College is an essential
asset for our changing society. We believe
in the power of an innovative, engaging, and
dynamic learning environment that fosters a
skill set beyond traditional walls.
We focus on the digital storytelling genres
that are shaping today’s digital landscape:
professional digital photography, graphic de-
sign, digital marketing, digital production and
filmmaking, and digital journalism.
Students start using modern digital
production tools on day one, quickly
creating professional-level media.
Immersive education combined with
real-world and community-based projects
prepare students for internships, which lead
to careers in the industries that are shaping
our world and positioning Colorado at the
forefront of the competitive landscape.
New Media—the communication interplay
between technology, images, and sound—isn’t
just on the rise and it’s not just a trend. It is
an unequivocal economic driver, and career
growth in the field is substantial.
