The Department of Communications Media prepares students to work in all fields of media: television and film production, audio recording, radio broadcasting, photography, graphic design, animation, games and simulations, media promotions, media marketing, research, project management, consulting, news writing, and scriptwriting. We are housed in IUP’s College of Education and Communications.
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 one of three tracks: Media Marketing, Media Studies, or Media Production to design a program that fits 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.
