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.
