Our Communication and Media Program is a skill-based, interdisciplinary, versatile, and culturally aware program that prepares emerging professionals to succeed in the fields of Communication, Public Relations, Social Media Management, Marketing, and Advertising. By bridging liberal arts and professional practice, our program provides students with a holistic foundation in critical thinking, theory, and craft. Our graduates are well-positioned for a variety of careers and will receive pre-professional training in the form of internships and client-based seminar projects. It should be noted that students in this major are required to have a minimum overall GPA of 2.5 before moving into their internship which typically occurs during the junior year.
The versatility of our program allows students to combine a degree in Communication and Media with a teacher certification. This power combination is our Communicatio and Media and Inclusive Early Childhood/Childhood Education. Those interested in this program will need to secure a GPA of 2.7 or above before moving into INCH coursework which typically begins fall semester of the junior year.
Beyond the foundational courses required for all majors, students seeking Early Childhood/Childhood Education Certification will work with their advisor to select electives and professional track courses that suit their academic interests and professional career path.
*Note: Only five courses (or 15 credits) will be accepted as transfer credit toward the Communication and Media major.
