BA in Emerging Media

Communication and Emerging Media

About the B.A. in Emerging Media

Cyber literacy and media literacy have never been more critical. Our new Emerging Media BA program focuses on studying new communication technologies.

Studying media from historical, cultural, and ethical perspectives develops a strong understanding of media’s role in our lives and society. This increase in media literacy and experiences gained in graphic design, photography, videography, UX & UI design, social media analytics, and data visualization prepare you as an Emerging Media major to excel when joining the workforce.

Majoring in Emerging Media prepares you to think critically about media creation and media consumption. You will develop the high-demand skills employers desire in journalism, public relations, advertising, and many other professions.
