Learn the strategies and skills to produce media and communicate effectively in any setting.
Get Ready for the Future
Now more than ever, effective communication must cut through a lot of noise to reach an audience before it’s received and understood.
We prepare students for the evolving demands of a career in professional communications by providing students with strategies, skills, and training to succeed in television and media production, podcasting, marketing, public relations, and advertising.
You’ll acquire the skills, knowledge, and technique you can use right away.
Although Purchase College has several majors related to media and communications, the BS in Communications provides an integrated approach to the study of message strategy, multimedia storytelling, content production, public relations, and advertising and helps students gain practical skills they can use in the creation and sale of television entertainment and corporate products and services.
