Department of Journalism and Media Communication
Undergraduate journalism and media communications students will engage in a powerful multimedia curriculum that invites creativity. Majors will first gain a strong foundation in writing, communication technology, and conceptual understanding. Later in their studies, students will choose career-specific courses in writing, reporting, editing, public relations, advertising, television, web design, and scientific or technical communication. The B.A. in Journalism and Media Communication is available as an accelerated program, meaning students can graduate in 3 or 3.5 years by enrolling in summer semesters.
Master’s students will be prepared for careers in communication management of health; environmental, scientific, or technical information; new communication technologies; journalism; strategic communication; and academia. The M.S. is both a theoretical and applied program.
