In this program, students investigate the formative role of media and communication on identity, society and democratic processes, and emerge with the critical and practical skills necessary to navigate the rapidly changing world of media as citizens and as professionals. Courses in more than a dozen disciplines allow students to explore aspects of media and communication from the theoretical to the practical, including media analysis and documentary production. Whether your interest is in media production, film, social media, journalism, advertising, or the impact media messages have on our lives, a degree in media and communications at Drew can help you meet your goals. Our major prepares students for graduate work or further professional training, as well as for positions in media and communications industries. This major offers unique opportunities including:
- a semester-long media seminar based in Manhattan
- facilitated internships and externships, and
- a range of programming that takes advantage of Drew’s proximity to the many media organizations based in and around New York City.
Students can also take advantage of Drew’s well-developed short and semester-long global studies programs, civic engagement, opportunities for independent study and research, and Drew’s global network of alumni and professional connections.
