Journalism and Multimedia Arts

Welcome to the Department of Journalism and Multimedia Arts. The department offers both undergraduate degrees and graduate degrees in the Multimedia, Advertising, and Web Development fields.

The Department of Journalism and Multimedia Arts empowers students to become effective and thoughtful civic communicators in a wide variety of media.

Students learn media theory – so they can understand the complex roles, functions and ethical obligations of media – and the practical skills that enable them to become successful media practitioners.  Our students go on to work for newspapers, magazines, television and radio stations, for-profit and non-profit public relations and advertising agencies and organizations, and a wide array of Web and Multimedia design and development industries in the public and private sectors.

Upon completing the program, students will possess a thorough understanding of media forms and delivery systems that will enhance their power as citizens and position them for careers in the ever-expanding universe of media industries.
