There is a growing demand for skilled professionals who can design, produce and manage media content effectively. This five-year combined program gives you the flexibility to pursue any undergraduate major you choose and get a head start on your master’s by taking some graduate level courses in interactive media your senior year. You’ll build a solid foundation in web production, social media, digital video and other forms of multimedia storytelling.
You can select one of three distinct concentrations depending on your specific interests and professional goals, including media design, social media and user experience design — or customize your own based on your career goals. You’ll also learn to critically analyze all aspects of media and develop problem-solving skills that are essential in such a rapidly evolving field.
The program can culminate with either an additional graduate course in communications, an internship or an advanced independent project that you design. And our vast network of alumni is a valuable resource for mentoring and job leads. Quinnipiac was rated a top 10 school for media professionals by LinkedIn, due in large part to the success our alumni have in the industry. Our graduates are working at CNN, ESPN and every major broadcast network.
