Communications media majors take advantage of a flexible curriculum that allows them to take a broad range of courses or to concentrate their education into a specialized set of courses. Students may choose either the Media Studies or Media Production track to design a program to meet their career goals. IUP-TV, WIUP-FM, and the Center for Media Production and Research provide hands-on experience in production, writing, and promotion outside the classroom.

The PhD program in Communications Media and Instructional Technology (CMIT) and the Master of Arts degree in Adult Education and Communications Technology (AECT) are unique programs rarely found at other universities. The CMIT PhD is one of only a few in the country to include production courses-in addition to theory and research. The AECT MA is offered jointly with the Department of Adult and Community Education and offers an option to complete the Instructional Technology Specialist Certification. The flexibility of these programs is popular with working professionals.
