Communications

Digital Media and Communication

Students learn to use digital media professionally to market themselves, an idea or a business. They analyze and apply storytelling principles to create compelling online content — in text and multimedia. We emphasize writing, editing and narrative storytelling technique. Students have these in mind as they use digital tools and various audio and digital software to create, edit and publish on digital platforms — in professional style.

Comprehensive

With all the technologies and tools available today, there is a huge value in excelling at more than one thing. As part of Villa’s Digital Media and Communication program, students will use a variety of computer-based programs, interfaces and technologies to create multimedia content for internet, mobile devices, broadcasting and other platforms.

Foundation

Despite all the changes the communication industry has seen over the last few years, the fundamentals still apply. Students will take traditional communications and journalism theory courses, but will learn how to apply them effectively and appropriately to emerging media and communications technologies.

Preparation

The Digital Media and Communication program teaches audio and video production, journalism, public relations, digital photography, multimedia editing, programming, web development and more. These skills are fine-tuned as students complete their internships, creating graduates that have everything they need to begin a career.

The Career Potential

There has been a radical shift in how people communicate. As newspapers fall to the wayside, new websites pop up by the minute. This undeniable change has created an opportunity for students with digital marketing knowledge to succeed in the business world like never before.

Digital Media and Communication graduates will be well versed in the evolving field of Journalism. In addition to studying traditional writing, mass communication and public relations, students will study graphic design, web design, video and audio production and other forms of new media.
