Join our vibrant community where students say they feel “at home.” The department helps students grow their professional skills while developing meaningful relationships with peers, faculty and professionals in the field. Students can rely on many department and university resources to help reach their goals.

In addition to writing and visual skills, presentation and design projects are incorporated into assignments so students can present their work with confidence for class, internships and future careers. Each course prepares students to develop skills as professionals to work at media organizations, corporations, nonprofits, public relations agencies and creative firms.

“My classroom experience in the Advertising, multimedia journalism and public relations department set me up for success when I interned in Los Angeles. The writing and pitching skills I learned easily translated into my internship. Without the help and confidence from my professors, I would not have been able to have an experience of a lifetime in the heart of entertainment.”
