COMMUNICATION ARTS MAJOR

We also offer a MINOR in Communication Arts.


 

This concentration is recommended for students interested in photography and video and audio production. Students can take courses in areas such as visual communication, photography, script writing and video production, graphic design and web site development. Communication Arts shows students how to combine images and words to convey a message. Students will explore their own creativity. Students will also learn the value of flexibility and diversity because one needs to combine diverse skills to be an effective communicator.
