What Our Students Say

The DMA program at BC has been perfect for me. It’s affordable and the courses in the visual and video programs plus taking advantage of Work Study opportunities have prepared me to step back into the job market. I now have the confidence and skillsets needed to successfully find a job in my desired market and a portfolio to showcasing my work.
