Welcome to the College of Mass Communication & Media Arts where your passion for media, creativity, and learning meets faculty innovation, experience and dedicated teaching.

What do you imagine yourself doing in five years? Whether you want to shoot and edit video, learn on-air reporting, broadcast sports events, create animation, write scripts for film and television, develop ad copy, advance to a graduate degree, manage a media business, learn media research, or practice multimedia art - our College is the place that will take you there.

We provide a contemporary mix of theoretical knowledge and hands-on experience. This provides you with the latest techniques and the conceptual knowledge to help you put those techniques to use.  Our award winning, internationally known faculty passionately advocate for you as you advance through your courses. Their successes and expertise will pave the way for you to find your own path. You will have access to state of the art facilities, and what you learn outside of the classroom setting will also go a long way toward developing a successful lifelong career. Our alumni all over the world will open doors to you for internships, externships, and future employment possibilities.

Explore our website to learn about our programs, email our faculty to discuss your interests, and visit us to get a glimpse of how we work and live in an exciting artistic and intellectual community.

I hope to see you here.
