Academics

We recognize the value of an education that integrates professional knowledge and critical understanding. Digital technologies are changing the ways that people generate, disseminate, receive, and use ideas and information.

The Communication & New Media major accounts for these changes by offering you an educational experience that is focused, fundamental, and flexible. Our curriculum is grounded on student participation and empowerment, and will provide you with the skills necessary to communicate effectively and appropriately in a variety of professional contexts.

Students in the Comm program learn to

  • critically examine their own experiences,
  • recognize the complexities of living in the global village,
  • explore the ways that communication technologies and popular culture infuse and affect our lives
  • master state-of-the-art software that enables them to execute their concepts professionally.

The program prepares graduates to be intellectually and technologically resilient and ready for inevitable change.
