Design Technology Department


The Design Technology department includes the Entertainment Technology, Graphic Design, and Interior Architectural Design programs. Our mission is to prepare students for careers in rapidly evolving design and media fields through comprehensive, hands-on training.

We are proud to announce our new Interaction Design Bachelor of Science degree program which blends the fields of design, user experience (UX), and technology. The Interaction Design degree will provide students with the skills necessary to enter this exciting field. ​

We are currently housed at the Airport Arts Campus, a satellite campus of Santa Monica College located at 2800 Airport Avenue, Santa Monica, California.

In Fall 2017, we are scheduled to move into our newly renovated Center for Media and Design (CMD).

For more information about our graduation rates, the median debt of students who completed the program, and other important information regarding gainful employment, please visit the Gainful Employment Webpage.
