Reviews of AB in Multimedia Arts graduates:

A. L.
◈ Studied BS in Multimedia Arts (slightly different course)
◈ At De La Salle - College Of Saint Benilde
◈ Graduated 2013

list bulletAbout my college education: You learn a lot using different media such as 2d and 3d animation, photography, gaming, videography, and etc.. .It's like a little of everything you know about arts.

There are a lot of things you will learn in studying BS in Multimedia Arts and one thing you will really learn is to know how to time manage properly. If you don't manage your time wisely, you might fail one of your subjects. Well for me, the most difficult project I encounter was video production. There are a lot of steps for you in order to make a good production. You have to research, make script, set schedule for your artist, set up lights, shoot, edit, render. After those hard work, you will feel happy because you were able to make a movie.

Passing the exams was sometimes difficult especially when you have two major subjects that are due on the same date. You also don't know which subject you should prioritize that's why some students tend to fail or had to repeat subjects.

One trait I learn in succeeding in this course is perseverance. You need to persevere in order to achieve your goal.

list bulletMy current job: My job requires answering client calls and emails, layouting and designing, proofing, then send it to printer.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college: Typography, photography, web designing, layouting, desiging, animation, video production, etc...

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job: 2 -3 Weeks

list bulletDo I recommend studying : In the Philippines, as a fresh BS in Multimedia Arts I expect to earn at least 15,000 php. If you are a more experienced employee, expect around 25,000 - 30,000 php.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: If you don't know how to draw, don't be afraid cause they will really teach you how to draw. Also, learn to enjoy!
