At the College of Saint Elizabeth, we bridge academic communications theory with mass media strategy. Courses are content-driven: we approach mediated communication as a practice, with priority given to the message over the media. Students are grounded in the liberal arts and fuse their writing with visual communications - providing a platform for ongoing engagement with today's media-driven world.
1. Internship requirement, with established relationships in major firms.
2. Access to technology and faculty with hands-on experience.
3. Personal experience in the field, with publication possibilities during the program.
Graduates of the Communications program have both the overview of communications theory and direct experience in real-world situations. With close proximity to New York City and access to valuable internships, many of our graduates have found careers with major regional institutions including Telemundo and Condé Nast.
Throughout the program, communications students are gaining practical experience. Whether a project is a weekly assignment, a Senior Capstone Experience, or part of a required apprenticeship, graduates of the communications program finish the program with a strong grasp of the field and a strong digital portfolio.
"Having the train right on campus opens up opportunities to explore not only the surrounding area, but also New York City."
Professor Steven Koski has been integrating video presentations into communications classrooms, culminating in an innovative Senior Capstone Poster session, and a 2013 course on video storytelling.
