Bachelor Degree

Elissa Doerksen

“The four-year Digital Media degree was a great balance of learning technical skills, ranging between video, audio and web design, and studying the theory of media itself. The classes that I took in my program were all quite different throughout the years, but when combined they prepared me for my current role by building my videography eye, teaching me the importance of audio, and most importantly shaping my use of creativity and the media that exists in the world. I use all of these elements daily in my current job, but even more I use my understanding of how media influences society and individuals to form the decisions that I make in my job.”


Elissa graduated with a BA in Digital Media Studies, and is currently working as the Digital Media Producer for Oceanside Church in Nanaimo
