Media, Design and Communication Arts (MDC)


Computing Science

Computing Science helps students develop strong foundational skills in computer coding.  Computing Science 30 can be used for entrance into post-secondary institutions as a replacement for any of the three traditional science courses (Biology, Physics and/or Chemistry).   Students must complete all three levels of computer science to use it for post-secondary entrance.

Computing Science 10

Students are introduced to a variety of computing topics, including the basics of how computers work, the relationship between hardware and software, the history of Computer Science, and how to build programs. Students will learn how to build their own website using JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. The majority of concepts will be introduced by having students create their own games.  Prerequisite:  None

 Computing Science 20                                              

Students develop skills gained in the 10-level course, and continue to look at how computers have influenced life and society. Students will be introduced to the Python language, while exploring more advanced topics of file access, working with graphics libraries, and a variety of data types. We will begin to study object-oriented programming.  Prerequisite: Computing Science 10

                                                                               

Computing Science 30                                                  

Students build on their previous skill and knowledge by focusing on the object-oriented approach to programming. Students continue in the Python programming language to explore the object-oriented approach to programming. Other topics include dynamic data structures, recursion, and searching and sorting methods. Server-side scripting and databases may also be introduced. Prerequisite: Computing Science 20

Graphic Design

Graphic Design 10

Students will explore the tools and technology used for 2D graphic design applications, and develop skills in areas of photography, photo editing and vector graphic design Students will be introduced to the basics of DSLR photography, as well as industry standard graphics programs like Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. Prerequisite: None

Graphic Design 20/30

Students continue to develop the knowledge and skills they need to work with real clients, create EPK’s (electronic Press kits), promotional campaigns, posters, flyers, and web presence graphics. Students will develop more advance proficiency in programs such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Photography, and Camera literacy.  Prerequisite: Graphic Design 10 or 20
