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.
