Program Highlights


What can you do with a Multimedia Communication degree?
A degree in Multimedia Communication allows students to use a multitude of platforms and technologies to creatively communicate to audiences (to entertain, persuade, or inform). Central to the program is the art of storytelling, digital publishing, and media production. The major is grounded in theory and practice with multimedia production opportunities throughout.

What does the Multimedia Communication major offer?
Multimedia Communication offers a broad introduction to visual/audio communication, storytelling, media ethics, history, and theory. Beyond that initial core, students will have an opportunity to continue a broad study across these areas but also have space to hone in on a specific area, such as radio, video, photography, web publishing, or multimedia journalism techniques. This multidisciplinary approach to curriculum design provides students with the theoretical knowledge and technical expertise needed for a communication career in a media-driven world.
