The Digital Arts Portfolio is a core component of the program, part of all classes, and developed throughout the course of study. It is also one of the key benefits of the Digital Arts program. Students graduate with a solid, well-rounded body of work to present to the world that has been critiqued and refined by professionals in the student's field. The portfolio reflects our students' diverse talents, and might take the form of a video reel, website, multimedia presentation, CD or set of streaming media pieces, animation, series of compositions, or anything else our students might imagine.

Portfolio Requirements

Student portfolios should include at minimum works from all of the following categories:

Image Artifacts

  • At least two (and not more than four) original works of static imagery, including a written description of the work.  A single work may be a collection of images.

Video Artifacts

  • At least one (and not more than three) original work(s) of video imagery, including a written description of the work.  A single work may be a collection of videos

Audio Artifacts

  • At least two (and not more than four) original works of a primarily sonic nature, including a written description of the work.  A single work may be a collection of sonic artifacts

Interactive Artifact

  • Documentation of at least one (and not more than three) interactive work(s), including video footage and a description of the work. 

Professional Sequence

  • Documentation of at least one PMGT project that relates to the digital arts.

Additional Requirements

  • Of these works, there must be at least one collaborative work documented.
  • Of these works, there must be at least three individual (non-collaborative) works documented.
  • Some of these works may overlap in definition (such as the inclusion of sonic work within a video); however, there will be a minimum of seven distinctive artistic works plus the PMGT documents in a complete portfolio.
