The Student Experience

Students enrolled in Applied Commerce and Digital Media courses gain the knowledge and skills needed for success in higher education and life after high school. While our department offers a wide range of courses, all students will experience hands-on practical projects and activities that develop critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills. These courses give the students the skills necessary to be effective business leaders, innovators, citizens, consumers, and employees.

What students will learn
