Hi. My name is Allie Gray Freeland, and I am the host of Rasmussen College's newest video block series, "What Should I Do With My Life?" So in this series, we'll speak with expert instructors that will help answer the question, what should I do with my life? So today I'm here with John Mindiola III, who is a technology and design instructor for Rasmussen College in Brooklyn Park, MN. So today he's going to share some really important information about graphic design and multimedia fields, and really, the steps that you take, education-wise and career-wise to get where you want to be.

[VISUAL SLIDE] What courses are offered at Rasmussen College though the multimedia programs? The multimedia technologies program and the School of Technology and Design at Rasmussen College offers a wide variety of courses. We start out with basics, like color theory and typography as foundational courses. The students move on to other things like web design, a little bit of interactive, some flash animation, all the way up to video and 3D classes, depending on their specialization. It really gives students an opportunity to explore and experiment different forms of media and gives them a wide skill set to enter the workforce.

All right, a very special thank you to John Mindiola III for sitting with us today to talk to us about educational and career opportunities and graphic design. So if this video sparked an interest in your desire to pursue educational opportunities in design and multimedia, please visit Thanks.
