Telling the Story
The Digital Media Program provides a comprehensive degree where students can structure their major to emphasize radio, television, film production, film studies, or webcasting. It is a well-rounded degree program with a strong liberal arts foundation, which is crucial to be successful in an industry that is not just about pushing buttons. The student will learn how to work as thoughtful observers of their world and become proficient with the technical tools to disseminate their stories and messages.
