As an academic program, New Media Communications offers the Digital Communications Arts major. This major integrates critical thinking and analytical skill with creative expression using a team-project based learning model that melds the cultural and the technical.
New media are “new” because the focus is on emerging digital media technology applications and cultural changes in content creation. Media are going through constant transitions, but one thing remains consistent through these transitions—storytelling.
Students at OSU have an opportunity in this program to gain practical, hands-on experience through practicums offered through Student Media, Media Services, Athletics, Agriculture, Oceanography, Advancement and other OSU offices. We encourage students to participate in education abroad and in professional internships.
