Graduate Testimonal James Byun Before coming to EMD, I was self-taught in everything and had already worked for four years as a designer. I took the program because it felt like I was missing something; I wanted to have a proper foundation in design and I wanted to be able to stop asking myself if my work was “good enough”. I got more than what I asked for. Not only did the program help me see what I was doing wrong, it helped set a higher standard of design. I was able to change my way of thinking from “is this piece even worth showing?” to “what can I do to make this better?” The EMD instructors, on top of being industry veterans, are top-notch characters who have a wealth of knowledge to offer. As it is a jam-packed one-year program, be prepared to work hard. You won’t regret it.

Photography Photography Certificate Program (part-time) Our Photography Certificate Program is one of the largest, most comprehensive part-time study programs in commercial photography in Canada. It is designed for those interested in pursuing a career in commercial photography, photojournalism, portraiture, or fine art. This program places equal emphasis on applied technical issues, art, and style. Students entering basic level courses in this program do not need any previous training or experience in photography. Students must have their own 35mm film or digital SLR camera and a sturdy tripod. An assortment of lenses is not necessary but is an advantage. Students with previous training or experience may challenge courses up to Practical Lighting. Approval through a portfolio showing with the Program Coordinator is required. Our instructors represent some of the top individuals in the commercial and fine art fields of photography. These working professionals ensure that students learn the most up-to-date techniques and acquire a realistic perspective of the commercial and fine art photographic industries, including the ethics and politics of the industry. Langara’s facilities include three fully-equipped studios, 13 fully-equipped colour and black and white darkrooms, colour and black and white dry-to-dry print processors, a large wet processing area, a large print finishing and mounting room, two well-equipped Mac labs for digital imagery, two Phase 1 Digital Backs for medium format, and a four-foot Epson 9600 digital printer.

Electronic Music Production Electronic Music Production (Full-Time) The Electronic Music Production Program trains producers on a number of levels, from individuals who will be writing, recording, and producing their own work, to individuals who will be recording and producing other artists’ works, to composers who will be writing, recording, and producing work for commercial purposes such as scores for film, TV, and games. The recording industry has changed significantly with the ongoing development of recording and producing software like Cubase that allow producers to work independently outside of the studio environment. Often you will find producers only using commercial studios to finalize the mix. The other instruments, vocals, effects, and mixing, will be taken care of outside of the commercial studio, saving significant money for recording artists. Students in this program will be using either a Mac or PC laptop, an audio interface, and the following software (all of which they keep): Cubase, Ableton Live, Reason, Native Instruments Komplete, Miroslav Philharmonik, and a mixing package. The students will register the computer and software in their own names. While students will produce the majority of their work on their own computer, they will also be working in some of Vancouver’s top commercial recording studios. Entry into this program is based on an interview. Students will receive extensive one-on-one instruction and consultation. All instructors are professional musicians and producers from the music industry, chosen for their extensive technical knowledge and industry recognized expertise.

Electronic Music Production (Part-Time) The courses in the part-time program are all stand-alone courses aimed at people who wish to produce their own music. Computer technology has revolutionized the music industry in so many ways, from changing how professional studios operate to creating an entirely new genre of home-based music production. Computer programs such as Reason, Cubase, or Ableton Live have made it possible for amateur musicians to compose, produce, mix, master, and publish very high quality music with remarkably little expense. All you need is a good PC or Mac computer, an inexpensive USB keyboard, and the software, which usually costs less than $500 per package. Programs like Propellerhead’s Reason (www.propellerheads. se) allow you to produce original music without the use of conventional instruments. You may create mixers, synthesizers, highly complex drum machines, and samplers that play thousands of beautiful acoustic and electronic instrument samples. Reason comes with a complete sampled array of orchestra instruments, loop players, and a mind-boggling collection of effects devices such as reverb, digital delay, vocoders, compressors, and phasers. For those who also want to record original analogue instruments (such as an acoustic guitar, piano, or vocals), we use programs such as Cubase (www.steinberg.net) along with a USB interface to record directly onto Cubase’s sequencer, and then we use programs such as Reason to accompany the track with as many other instruments as required. This program is also very relevant to people interested in using programs such as Ableton Live for DJing or creating very complex loop based music. The program is also very useful for interactive media designers who wish to produce soundtracks, sound effects or sound bytes. You do not have to be an experienced musician to make very good use of the courses in this program.

The wealth of history and culture in this area is unparalleled for those interested in the classical Greek, Hellenistic, Byzantine, Roman and early Christian periods, and Islam. Twenty-first century Turkey is a secular Republic that balances more traditional Muslim cultural values with modern western ideas.

Student Testimonial Ra ja a Fallatah, Saudi Arabia I can say honestly that my experience in the [LEAP] Program was really enthusiastic, full of fun, full of knowledge, and most important, full of new academic skills in each level. We had seminar discussions and gave research presentations. In Level 8, I wrote a research paper related to my area of interest and I’m using it to apply to Canadian and nonCanadian universities. We learned tons of useful skills from the very qualified, knowledgeable, and helpful instructors!

Speaking of LEAP. “I started taking LEAP eight years ago when I just arrived in Canada. I started in Level 6, but I failed it. At that time, I didn’t even know what a thesis statement was, and during a two minute presentation, I forgot my speech and just stood there for almost a minute. I had to admit that my confidence in my good English skills was shaken. But in order to challenge myself, I retook it for a second time and did it better. Then I also finished Level 7 and Level 8. Now when I look back, I am proud of myself that I didn’t quit when I failed my first Level 6. The LEAP program is the best Academic Preparation Program, it helped me a lot to build a strong foundation and prepared me better for my future study. I think every single thing I learned from LEAP was applied to my further study. After LEAP, I took my 1st year and 2nd year university transfer courses at Langara, and then transferred to UBC. I got my bachelor’s degree specializing in Logistics and Transportation. Before I had my son last summer, I was working in an international logistic company located at the Vancouver International Airport. Starting from LEAP, I had a new life in Canada. Accompanied with the academic achievements, I was lucky enough to develop some wonderful friendship with my classmates from LEAP. We witnessed each other’s growth and stood by each other in the up and downs of life. We all thank LEAP for giving us the platform to unearth our potential to achieve our dreams.” Ruifeng Erin Gao 2003 LEAP Graduate
