Major in Media Communications

The Bachelor of Arts in Media Communication program aims to produce well-rounded professionals who can adapt to new and emergent trends in communication. Traditional programs generally separate the study of journalism and the study of mass communication while breaking the study of journalism into tracks in print, radio, and TV. Students interested in a Media Communication career get up-to-date instruction and familiarity with the convergence of existing media (e.g.. print outlets moving online), as well as new and emerging media (social networking, for example). Students majoring in Media Communications acquire a broad range of skills and have the ability to adapt to new trends in order to work across varied media platforms.

The following occupations represent some of the career opportunities available. Some will require additional education. For additional information, please contact Student Advisement and Career Planning. You may also want to review the degree plan for Media Communication
