Media Arts

Available at the Hastings Campus
  • MediaArtsVideo260

    The Media Arts program at Central Community College-Hastings is dedicated to providing educational opportunities, creative environment and professional experience necessary for students planning careers in broadcasting, graphic arts, social media, multimedia, photography and video production.    

    The program is unique because it merges these fields into one course of study. While concentrating on a specialization, students are exposed to a range of opportunities that allows them to see how other media specialties are integrated into their field of study.


    An added benefit to the media arts program is the practical experience each student receives in operating campus radio station  KCNT-FM (88.1) radio, completing graphic design projects, working in the Media Arts' video production facility and working on a student-designed-and-managed Web site. This integrated practical experience is invaluable when a student is looking for a job.

    Students in the associate of applied science degree complete a common core of study and then select additional courses to specialize in one of the following areas:

    • Broadcasting
    • Graphic Arts
    • Photography
    • Video Production
