These courses allow students to refine their skills in capturing and editing high-quality images, exploring various genres of photography, and developing a personal photographic style.

In the video production/filmmaking track, students can opt for Broadcast Media/Video Production and TV3. These courses focus on video production, storytelling, and post-production techniques. Students learn about camera operation, video editing, scriptwriting, and creating compelling visual narratives for different platforms.
