The College of the Arts and Communication at William Paterson University offers undergraduate and graduate programs in the visual arts, communication, and music. This module will identify and evaluate the means and purposes of creative communication and the value of working in groups as a condition of the new participatory and collaborative nature of media communication under the processes of digitisation. Example career fields that combine the two areas are public relations and marketing, TV and radio broadcasting, graphic design and publishing.
Local news is still important in an evolving media environment, according to research from Deakin communication specialists. Therefore, our flexible degree structure enables you to continue with your studies in the humanities and social sciences, and/or languages and still remain enrolled in Media and Communications.
Electives can be selected from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences or from other faculties within the university (subject to permission from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics suggest a very positive outlook for careers in Communication and Media, particularly in the New Jersey and broader New York metropolitan areas.
