VAMA Mission Statement


The mission of the Journalism, Multimedia Graphics and Design, and the Photography Department is to provide students with opportunities for growth and development that set the foundation for self-directed learning, academic achievement, relevant, real world training, and career accomplishment for commercial application. We do this through high quality, innovative educational programs using current technical, creative, and software trends in the industry. We convey our passion for learning, our commitment to excellence, and our dedication to our students in the communities we serve. Through critical thinking we prepare our students, both entry level and continuing education to create the necessary skill set in visual communication and production of photographic images, motion, graphics or digital media.
