Others talk about keeping up with changes in media.
We embrace change, and we prepare you to lead the way in media transformation. Our faculty and students take risks, innovate, and adapt. We embrace and explore the challenges created by media convergence, the mobile revolution, and blurring boundaries of media platforms and content formats.
We believe you should enter your career path already experienced and confident. To that end, we offer not only high-quality classroom instruction but also a broad range of student agency and student media experiences. We require that you have at least one professional internship before graduating, and that you engage in at least one immersive learning opportunity.
