The Media Communications minor prepares students for a range of careers in media. This interdisciplinary program draws from courses in several disciplines to provide all of the knowledge and skills necessary for today’s media, including both the written, graphic and broadcast media. Students sharpen writing skills and gain familiarity with journalistic style, learn skills for page design and layout in the print and web-based media. They also investigate the business aspects of the media, and, in line with our Catholic mission must take a course on media ethics. This program will provide students with a diverse range of skills that will be highly marketable in today’s multi-media society.
Students from any major will benefit from developing a minor in Media Communications as it trains students in skills applicable to many careers.
