DIGITAL COMMUNICATION & DESIGN
Bachelor of Arts
The Digital Communication & Design program combines elements of a traditional Communication Studies degree (Social Media Marketing, Digital Journalism, Message Design) with a Digital Design degree (Video & Sound, Digital Imaging & Composition, Motion Graphics). These are the tools necessary to design and deliver messages to an inter-connected world. They are complimentary skills, and the combination of the two produces graduates that are productive, insightful, and highly employable.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Digital Communication & Design is a New Degree for a Digital Age. It’s a Communication Studies program for the new millennium where creativity and technology meet. It’s a place to learn the skills that are indispensable for every organization, every business, and every ministry.
A digital world demands that universities today offer something beyond the traditional Communications Degree— a program that occupies the unique intersection of creative visual content and the contemporary media channels that allow any individual to reach the world through a keystroke or the click of a mouse.
Digital Communication & Design courses will give you the ability to design messages and deliver them to an inter-connected planet. Social Media & Journalism combine with Digital Imaging & Interactive Media to teach skills that are as essential as I.T. in today’s world.
In addition to taking the “Journalism in the Digital Age” course on Jessup’s Rocklin campus, students in the Digital Comm Journalism Concentration will spend one exciting semester attending King’s College in New York. Students will experience academic classes at King’s College’s renowned Journalism program, and internship experiences at New York news outlets. Contact Lead Faculty Paul Robins for details on the Journalism Concentration and the King’s College Journalism Semester in New York.
