Join the CIIT community - where Creatives, Programmers, and Entrepreneurs thrive.


To become an expert in media and visual arts, you need both technical knowledge and practical experience. At CIIT, our Media and Visual Arts strand can prepare you for a career in the media and creative industry. In this program, you can push the boundaries of your own artistry. There’s an undeniable value in diversity. Our students are encouraged to uniquely express themselves not only in their work but in the community we provide for them.

You will study seven to ten ( 7 – 10) subjects per semester. General academic subjects will be delivered via lecture while specialized subjects will be taught through a lab-based format. For the Media and Visual Arts Strand, you will study specialized subjects such as:

  • Introduction to Multimedia Arts
  • Art History
  • Drawing
  • Elements and Principles of Graphic Design
  • Digital Photography
  • Writing for New Media
  • Color Theory
  • Typography and Layout
  • Fundamentals of Film and Video Production

*All classes are taught through online instruction and recorded so that students may access them at their own convenience. Synchronous lecture classes do not exceed one (1) hour. Labs may go beyond one (1) hour as these classes focus on more practical lessons and thus, are more hands-on.

While instruction in the DepEd mandated academic subjects will be contextualized as specifically as possible for this strand, you will also be able to acquire the following specialized skills at the end of each year level:


In your first year, you will learn basic techniques and tools for drawing as well as how artworks are adapted into digital translations. An understanding of general elements and principles of design will be developed and will also be applied through photography. You will be able to develop solutions for design problems and produce effective layouts based on your analysis of an audience’s perceptual capabilities. The following technical skills will also be acquired such as:

  • Creating basic multimedia projects such as short films and online information campaign galleries using Adobe® Photoshop CC/InDesign software/Premiere
  • Setting up exhibitions
  • Using camera equipment and photo editing software
  • Creating photo projects and professional portfolios


Knowledge of art concepts will be further expanded in your second and final year. You will learn how color conveys messages and how to effectively use it. An appreciation for film, its process and history as well as the filmmaking process will be developed. Along with this, you will also acquire a nuanced comprehension of various media forms and its social implications. Instruction in the following practical skills will also be received:

  • Producing quality typography by using physical and digital tools
  • Publishing new media content online
  • Identifying opportunities for writing and publishing online content
  • Creating a music video or short film
