New Media Communications

The New Media Communications (NMC) Area of the School of Arts and Communication offers Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA), Bachelor of Arts (BA), and Bachelor of Science (BS) degrees in Digital Communication Arts. There is also a minor in New Media Communications. Course work explores the storytelling capacity of contemporary media and technologies. When pursuing an NMC degree students acquire the skills they need to use today’s media effectively in sharing knowledge, imagination, and information. Students also learn to anticipate how future changes in the media are likely to influence their lives. In NMC courses, students explore how to make abstract concepts or hidden processes visible, how to anticipate people’s reactions to innovation, how to write professionally, how to recognize the influence of media, how to produce creative content in a variety of media formats, and much more. A New Media Communications major prepares students for a lifetime of change and involvement in the digital world.

NMC courses are taught in multiple venues on campus including the Motion-Capture and Gaming labs, both currently located on the fourth floor of Strand Ag Hall.

Each year numerous New Media students participate in internships with on-campus organizations and off campus with local and regional companies. Selected students participate in the National Association of Broadcasters annual convention and other regional and national organizations and events.
