"The Communication & Media program is designed to be hands-on and transfer-friendly. Students have many opportunities to get involved in a meaningful way, to develop a portfolio of work, and to earn leadership and collaborative experience. It’s unique because it’s broad enough to expose students to a variety of communication and media pursuits, but focused enough so they have critical general education and communication credits they need to transfer into related programs."
