Communication, Culture, & Media – BA

Communication, Culture, and Media (CCM) is an interdisciplinary liberal arts-based program that provides students with the depth and breadth of knowledge necessary to understand how media, communication, and technology function in contemporary culture and daily life. We encourage our students to think differently about the power of media and communication by offering theoretical and analytical tools that engage media technologies and communication systems in critical frameworks such as philosophy, sociology, politics, globalism, and history.

Students in the CCM program cultivate the knowledge and ability to harness the power of media and communication so that they can act creatively in the world, become a leader, and prepare for advanced graduate study or for career positions in business, industry, government, non-profit organizations, and freelancing.

Students who choose CCM are creative, critical thinkers interested in re-imagining the world in order to transform it. For communicators, intellectuals, creatives, designers, social advocates, cosmopolitans, cultural citizens—CCM prepares students for success in an increasingly complex globalized world. For students who choose CCM, the future is theirs to determine.
