Our communication curriculum is interdisciplinary, varied, and flexible. Reflecting an educational philosophy grounded in experiential learning and the liberal arts, Centenary’s Communication Arts Program focuses on developing higher order thinking skills to promote critical, strategic decision-making in the support of active problem solving. In our studio-workshops, students engage real clients in social media, public relations, and design projects, write, shoot, and edit films for festival competitions, produce multimedia journalism and podcasts, and gain experience from internships in desired fields.
Centenary's Communication majors pursue one of three rich concentrations of study that overlap in key areas. All Communication majors receive a strong grounding in contemporary communication practices including strategic planning, writing, cultural analysis, digital film and audio production, and design communication. In their senior year, all students create an individualized portfolio of original work designed to launch professional careers. Our competitively prepared students build innovative careers while simultaneously productively shaping the communities in which they live and work.
