Orange County, CA, (November 17, 2020) FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On Friday, November 13, 2020, Coastline Professor of Digital Graphics, Angela Gomez-Holbrook, and Don Bui, Dual Enrollment Project Manager, shared their experience on a Zoom webinar with 47 students from 35 schools in developing digital media dual enrollment with K-12 partners through the College & Career Access Pathways partnerships. Coastline has a robust dual enrollment program that includes Adobe certification exams, portfolio development and business basics curriculum. In addition, the Coastline Digital Media program searches for internships, job shadowing for students and has several students interning and working as designers in its marketing department.
Digital Media classes are among the most popular electives in California high schools, and demand for them is growing in dual enrollment offerings. Coastline College's dual enrollment program opens the door to many high school students from local districts to earn certificates before they graduate high school. And with the recent approval of 2 new 9-unit certificates of specialization, a new AA degree and an 18-unit certificate of achievement for spring 2021, Coastline expects to raise its yearly award average.
