Students can develop design skills for both print and multimedia environments, as they also develop communications writing skills, photography skills, and knowledge of communications law, ethics, and business.

Admission to the program is based on acceptance of a portfolio of photography, graphics work, and communications writing after completing GRA 217  and PHO 301 .
