The online BA in Communication and Media equips students with a critical understanding of both new and traditional media, and provides them with the durable skills needed to succeed in the 21st century workplace. Through interdisciplinary coursework, students explore the history of mass media and communication technologies; examine their social implications; and consider their contemporary applications. In addition to gaining subject-matter expertise, students also develop their ability to conduct research, analyze texts and data, think critically, and write effectively. The skills and knowledge acquired in the program prepare graduates for careers in public relations, journalism, advertising and marketing, and social media management, while also serving as a foundation for further study.
