Communication, Media and Arts Division

What You’ll Learn

The Communications, Media and the Arts programs may interest students who enjoy expressing their thoughts and opinions, and using their creativity to create content and works of art. The coursework is interdisciplinary, which means students have the freedom to take courses in a variety of disciplines. For example:

  • A student interested in a career in social media would want to major in Communications, but could take courses in graphic design and video editing.

  • A student interested in graphic design would supplement their studies with a variety of courses in the fine arts.

  • A Fine Arts student could enroll in Communication courses to better understand how to utilize social media platforms to promote and grow their own professional brand.

Students can pursue careers in many industries but the most common include journalism and media, visual, studio and performing arts, and audio/visual technology.
