Majors and Minors in Duquesne Media
For specific questions about the Media undergraduate program, contact our undergraduate director, Dr. Michael Dillon.
The Media department empowers students to become effective and thoughtful civic communicators in a wide variety of media.
Students learn media theory – so they can understand the complex roles, functions and ethical obligations of media – and the practical skills that enable them to become successful media practitioners. Our students go on to work for newspapers, magazines, television and radio stations, for-profit and non-profit public relations and advertising agencies and organizations, and a wide array of web and multimedia design and development industries in the public and private sectors.
Upon completing the program, students will possess a thorough understanding of media forms and delivery systems that will enhance their power as citizens and position them for careers in the ever-expanding universe of media industries.
