Southwestern College (Telemedia Department Southwestern College)

Established in 1961, Southwestern College is one of 109 public community colleges in the state of California and the only institute of higher education located in the southern portion of San Diego County. Its location—nestled between the City of San Diego and the U.S.-Mexico international border on a 156-acre plot—positions it to play an important role in the intellectual growth of the more than 400,000 residents that call South County home.

The Telemedia program at Southwestern College began in 1982. It has grown and made significant advancements since then to meet the challenge of providing quality educational opportunities for its students. The program has done well to keep up with the extremely fast pace of change in media technology and has been a leader among the region's colleges and universities in the utilization of digital technology in film/video production and post-production.

The Telemedia program recently moved into its new home in the Southwestern College library/Learning Resource Center building. This facility provides Telemedia students with an outstanding instructional environment, including a state of the art television studio, advanced film and video editing and post-production capabilities. It also provides the basis for the expansion of the curriculum into new and emerging areas of media production and instruction.

Telemedia is a rapidly evolving course of study that merges art and technology, incorporates a variety of disciplines and offers students an opportunity to learn about and explore this exciting field.

The Telemedia Faculty brings a broad and diverse range of experience and expertise to the classroom. They share a commitment to media production instruction that emphasizes a “hands on approach” to “learning and doing.”

The new Telemedia facilities are designed to create an enhanced teaching and learning environment that utilizes “state of the art” technology to provide students with outstanding educational opportunities in this exciting course of study.

The Telemedia major is designed to allow the student to gear their education towards a specific career goal. The following list is a sample of the many career options available for the telemedia major. Most of these require a certificate or associate degree, some require a baccalaureate degree, and a few require a graduate-level degree: producer, director, art director, advertising agent, broadcaster, special effects technician, camera operator, studio manager, actor, script writer, grip, high school or college instructor, performance artist, computer graphics artist, animator, editor, and communication manager.
