Our Programs

About Us Academic ProgramsAlthough TCOM is one of the largest academic departments on campus, it doesn’t feel big. Our class sizes and active student organizations help create small family communities within our four concentrations:

  • film and media studies
  • digital production
  • news
  • sales and promotion

Our graduate program averages 12 new students each year, and they start together in the fall semester.
