Digital Media & Journalism

Projected Launch Fall 2017

Digital technology has transformed the media in immeasurable ways. Although there has been a loss of jobs in traditional or “legacy” media, there has been tremendous growth in digital or “new” media. New job functions, business models, and legal/ethical issues require that students have different skill sets and theoretical perspectives. This new online major will provide students with valuable and relevant coursework from Journalism, Telecommunications and Media Studies. It will prepare students to work for digital media sites such as Buzzfeed, Gawker, Vice or The Huffington Post, but also to be leaders in this field.
