Communication and Media

“Media” is a fascinating concept—unlike in the days of limited channels (like television, radio, and newspapers) these days media channels can run throughout nearly everything we do. The Internet and social media have changed the playing field, and a student in any major will benefit from a minor in Communication and Media to understand how commerce and culture are affected by this incredible phenomenon.
