Career College: Nevada Design, Visual Communications Programs

Looking for accredited career colleges, technical schools, and universities in Nevada offering Design, Visual Communications degrees. Most training and degree programs in communications technology focus on \ photography, educational media, film, radio and television.

The experience you are likely to have going to college in Nevada is as widely varied as the state itself. The mining towns of Eastern Nevada, such as Battle Mountain, Winnemucca and Elko, offer career experience in the resource extraction industry. Then there are the gambling towns of Reno and Las Vegas, which could not be more different from one another. Despite the widespread casinos and their associated nightlife, Reno is an established city with a real down-home feel. Reno has strong community organizations, and a small but hardy arts scene. Las Vegas is, to some, the Eighth Wonder of the World. This is a 24-hour city with world-class opportunities in the fields of entertainment and hospitality. Or perhaps you will be drawn to the serene desert life in the largely empty parts of Nevada between these cities.

Create stories for TV, web & more with a Communications Degree

To say that we live in the communications age would be a gross understatement. The vast majority of us rely so heavily on our cell phones that if we leave our home without them, we feel naked. But our reliance doesn't stop there. From television, to radio, to wireless technology, to GPS tracking systems, to the Internet, we are wholly dependent on our ability to communicate with one another. Staying connected is of the utmost importance in today's global economy.

The Rise of Communications Programs

Given how dependent we are on communications, it should be no surprise that programs in this field have begun cropping up all over the country in recent years. Depending on what type of career you want to pursue, you have a whole host of communications disciplines from which to choose. In the entertainment section, you have film, television, and radio. And for more practical purposes, you have wireless communications, networking, and telephony. Both branches are progressing at an unbelievable rate, and both offer numerous career opportunities for those with the appropriate training.

What That Training Might Include

In a typical communications program, you'll be exposed to basic electrical engineering, networking, computer science, telecommunications, and mathematics. Thereafter, your actual curriculum will be largely determined by what specific track you want to pursue. The entertainment branch of communications might not rely as heavily on wireless technology or GPS/satellite systems. Whereas the other branch might not rely as heavily on marketing, consumer psychology, advertising, storyboarding, or plot lines. Because communications is such a broad field, there is a lot of ground that one can cover during the course of his or her study.
