Clear, accurate and creative composition and distribution of information is the focus of the Communication Arts major.
We live in an age of instant communication that seems to invent a new means of conveying messages almost daily. Those who are able to master the crafting of messages well, and who understand the best way to send the messages to reach the desired audiences, are highly sought-after employees.
The Communication Arts major makes extensive use of a multimedia production lab designed specifically for our students in the media. Students will learn techniques of digital imaging, as well as concentrate upon the fundamentals of writing and editing for both print and video media.
The “arts” portion of the major is addressed with a foundation of coursework in American and English literature. American literature addresses issues pertaining to early magazines, and British literature makes use of historical themes in classic works that are still portrayed in music, movies and videos today. Finally, writing courses help to provide additional focus on one of the principal needs of today’s employers. Strong written and oral communication skills and adeptness with use of technology are the primary abilities that will make our students stand out from those from other schools and programs.
