Don't just consume media - make it!
In collaboration with instructors in PLU’s School of Arts and Communication and its award-winning MediaLab, Continuing Education offers a suite of media production workshops. These interactive workshops combine hands-on experience with theoretical foundations to allow business professionals, amateur genealogists, aspiring podcasters, and media studies students to realize their creative visions.
Each workshop stands on its own, but the completion of all three confers a Certificate of Completion.
