Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 02, 2013
The Atlanta campus of SAE Institute, one of the world’s first creative media education programs to combine practical and theoretical curriculum, is now offering Diplomas and Associate of Science degrees in their Music Business and Digital Journalism programs.
The accreditation for both programs is recognized by Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS), America’s largest national accrediting organization of degree-granting institutions.
“We’re thrilled to offer degrees in our Music Business Program and Digital Journalism Program for students in Atlanta,” says Josh Grau, National Academic Coordinator for SAE Institute. “Both are excellent complements to our industry-leading Audio Technology Program, and will give our students a variety of in-demand entrepreneurial skills that will widen their career options and enhance their economic value as creative media professionals.”
SAE Atlanta’s Music Business Program (MBP) helps artists, producers, performers, and other aspiring music industry professionals to understand how the business side of music partners with the creativity that inspires it. Classes will explore the way music projects are pitched, sold, copyrighted/protected, produced, marketed, and delivered.
The Digital Journalism Program (DJP) provides students who want to pursue careers as multimedia reporters/journalists, digital editors, bloggers, graphic and web designers, audio producers, and production specialists with a broad overview of – as well as discipline-specific instruction in – new media journalism.
“A big advantage of SAE’s approach is the practical instruction that we offer our students in their chosen area of study,” says Grau. “What they’re learning isn’t just theory and classroom-based: it’s real life, hands-on education that leverages the vast expertise of our teachers, who are all active creative media professionals.”
Along with SAE Atlanta’s practical curriculum, its new educational offerings also include collaborative courses that allow students from all three of its creative media programs to work together on their projects. This cross-pollination of student expertise, interests, and backgrounds results in an integrated learning experience that broadens student knowledge and enhances their multi-discipline awareness.
“Once our students have earned their degrees, that’s when another big SAE benefit kicks in,” says Grau. “We have over 50 campuses worldwide and an amazing network of alumni, many of whom are influential industry leaders. This international reach, combined with their employment-ready skills, will give our students a tremendous edge in today’s competitive creative media job market.”
