Students work toward a B.S. in Media and Communication with concentrations in Media Studies, Video & Film Production, Journalism, Public Relations, Digital Media or by contract. Additionally, the program offers an A.S. degree and minors in communication and cinema studies (see Program Requirements below).
Media and Communication students have gone on to create major network programming, garner credits in Academy Award-winning movies, write and edit for big-city daily newspapers, design major websites, excel at graduate school, provide public information for large businesses and non-profits, teach in high schools and universities, practice law, and a wide array of other professional activities.
