The Stage Lighting & Video program explores the artistry of lighting and video design and operation, for a wide variety of live applications, such as concerts, theater productions, broadcast, trade shows, theme parks, cruise ships, resorts, corporate events, product launches and award ceremonies. Students acquire practical hands-on experience in all aspects of lighting and video technologies and explore how, where and why to apply these skills through study of conceptual and artistic applications.  Lighting and video play an integral part in our overall perception and appreciation of live shows and as a result the technologies are changing at an unprecedented pace resulting in the need for new highly skilled and creative designers and operators.
