Department of Communications

The B.A. in Film, Television, and Media (FTVM) is housed within the Department of Communications. The Department curriculum provides a broad understanding of communications media within a liberal arts framework. Students dedicated to building professional careers in advertising, public relations, journalism, film television, and media as well as those interested in preparing for post-baccalaureate programs, will find degree programs designed by the Communications Department to meet their needs and to develop their skills and interests. The Communications Department offers three major degree programs: Advertising/Public Relations, Journalism, and Film, Television, and Media. The Film, Television, and Media B.A. program integrates critical thinking and critical making.  By approaching both traditional and emerging media as creative storytelling and grounding students in the knowledge of the history, politics, forms and industry structures of media stories, students learn to adapt to a constantly changing media landscape and how they can make a positive impact on society using their creative voices. FTVM students take courses on storytelling in and across media forms.
