Digital Media Institute  

The Digital Media Institute (DMI) trains students through a two-year associate degree in advertising design and two one-year accelerated programs in animation, visual effects, interactive content and game development in a real-world atmosphere. DMI’s mission is to deliver high quality training taught by industry professionals and prepare students for careers in digital media.

About DMI

The Digital Media Institute moved to BRF’s InterTech Science Park in 2014 after residing on the LSU Shreveport campus for five years. DMI is the only non-profit digital media school in the region that supports collaborative efforts with businesses and industries to create more economic activity for the community.

Students benefit from a “learn by doing” approach, and the instructors and administrators create an atmosphere that facilitates real-world scenarios. Drawn from a diverse local population which includes working professionals or recent high school or college graduates, DMI students become adept at animation, visual effects and computer graphics for film and interactive gaming. The program prepares students for career positions such as a 3D modeler, 3D texture artist, rotoscope artist, scene layout artist and 2D compositing artist, among others.

Learn From Industry Professionals

The instructors at DMI are industry veterans and our pipeline features industrial-grade hardware and software. At DMI, you’ll learn to work with the tools that the industry expects you to know.

DMI offers the most accelerated program in Louisiana with high-quality training with day and night class options, as well as a 24-hour flex lab where students can work on independent projects. Students benefit from an enhanced workforce dynamic with a unique environment—all at a low cost.

DMI continues to work to diversify its offerings, with new programs in development both in the one-year intensive model as well as partnerships with regional 2-4 year schools in the area to enhance digital media education.
