Our interdisciplinary communication curriculum is varied and flexible -- and anchored by real-world, professional preparation. 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; they write, shoot, and edit films for festival competitions; and they produce multimedia journalism and podcasts -- all while gaining coveted professional experience from internships.

Centenary's Communication majors pursue one of three rich concentrations of study that overlap in key areas: Creative Strategic Content, Film/Television/Video, or New Media Design. All Communication majors develop key contemporary communication skills including strategic planning, content development and professional writing, digital film and audio production, cultural analysis, and design communication. In their senior year, graduating students create an individualized portfolio of original work designed to launch professional careers. Our competitively prepared students build innovative professional pathways while simultaneously productively shaping the communities in which they live and work.


Our Film/Television/Video concentration prepares students to professionally engage the dynamic areas of audio/visual media scriptwriting, production, promotion, and distribution.

New Media Design

Our new media design concentration allows students to master the methods and practices associated with multimedia, web, user-interface, and digital graphic design in the contexts of branding and campaign management.

Creative Strategic Content

In the Creative Strategic Content concentration students develop and hone high-demand professional skills sought by a wide-variety of companies, businesses, and organizations: strategic communication and planning, social media marketing, public & media relations, multimedia journalism, podcasting, and sports information.
