The Media department empowers students to become skilled, effective, ethical 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 organizations and professionals — and the practical skills that enable them to become successful media practitioners. Our students go on to work for newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations, for-profit and nonprofit 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.
