DIGITAL MEDIA AND COMMUNICATION

The digital media and communication program gives students the academic knowledge and practical experience needed to enter, and excel in, the ever-growing, exciting and often lucrative field of communication.

A degree in communication is the 
gateway to careers in numerous fields including journalism, television, film, public relations, marketing and education. This major is designed with that diversity in mind, providing concentrations in four key areas:

  • Integrated Marketing

  • Graphic Design

  • Film and Visual Effects

  • Multimedia Journalism

The Center for Creative Media

The digital media and communication (DMaC) program includes foundational core courses to help hone students’ communications skills, as well as plenty of hands-on experience. 

Beginning freshman year, you’ll have full access to state-of-the-art equipment in Hilbert’s Center for Creative Media (link to center page). The center, solely for the use of DMaC students and accessible at all hours, has three high-definition video editing suites, an iMac computer lab and a dedicated audio recording suite. Professional quality video and audio equipment is also available for overnight checkout.

Students in all four concentrations will gain real-world experience through a senior-year capstone project that allows them to showcase their creativity and acquired skills. Capstones range from various internships (linked to internship page) to independent projects.

Hilbert professors bring communication industry experience into the classroom, where the student-teacher ratio is 14-to-1. Small class sizes provide an opportunity to build mentoring relationships with professors, many of whom have industry contacts.
