A Distinctive Program
This program is designed for post-baccalaureate students whose intentions are to enter professional markets with current and relevant skills putting stories into compelling narrative form through new and digital means. While many students graduate with some working knowledge of new and digital media, this program would intensify their working knowledge and understanding of various tools, programs and skill sets that are imperative in today’s workplaces, therefore making those who complete this program valuable assets to any organization of which they are a part. This competency is especially important since we live in an age where information saturation is dense and facts presented are often distorted or untrue.
We cap our cohorts at 15 students. Having a smaller cohort encourages you and your classmates to form lifelong personal and professional relationships. There is a special bond that comes with truly getting to know all of the other members of your class.
An Integrated Curriculum
With a diverse set of courses you will gain a tremendous breadth of experience throughout the program. Students enter the program with an undergraduate degree in communication or media studies and with an interest in advertising, documentary production, journalism or public relations. Exposure to a variety of disciplines is vital in increasingly integrated media world. Students will develop a foundation in producing non-fictional narrative communication, along with the technical skills to tell stories across digital media platforms.
