The Department of Communication & Design Arts offers programs of study in public relations, visual communication design, journalism, and cinema and media arts. The approximately 90 students in the Department encounter a curriculum focusing on theory and practice, and their academic work is complemented by hands-on experiences with Fifth Street Communications®, and the Andersonian. We help students make the journey from being merely consumers of media to being skilled and thoughtful storytellers, content creators and designers in a range of professional areas.
