In addition, the Digital Media Arts Department offers related programs in radio & television broadcasting, film production, film studies, and animation.
Our program covers communication in its multifaceted dimensions — from nonverbal communication to the rhetoric of race; discourse analysis to public speaking and persuasion; conflict studies to media criticism; broadcast writing to public relations crisis management; cross-cultural communication to writing the journalistic news story and feature story; and the history of mass communication to principles of communicating in organizations.
Our graduates forge successful careers in a wide range of media-based jobs — in public relations, radio and television, journalism — and in a wide variety of non-media areas that use communication as the central tool for accomplishing objectives — such as human resources, intercultural ministry and missions, information management, event coordination, and teaching.Our students also are well prepared for further studies in graduate school.
Each class you take at HU has Christ at its core.
