At most universities, breaking important news, directing influential documentaries, and building next-generation Web sites are part of students’ future plans. At Ball State, they’re part of the curriculum. Through the Department of Telecommunications (TCOM), you can pursue a career in traditional media such as video, audio, and film; specialize in an emerging media industry; or both. Regardless of the direction you choose, you’ll create content on and for a variety of media through experiential learning—that is, learning derived from experience—and internships. Learn more about our major and minors.

If you’re already sporting a BA, BS, or BFA, we also offer a master of arts degree in telecommunications with a digital storytelling emphasis. Learn more about our master's program.
