The Center for Mass Communications provides students with a creative, project based learning environment. 


What is it that we do? We learn how to make stuff. Cool stuff. Stuff that makes people ask, “how did they do that?” Stuff that real people and organizations in the community have used to promote themselves and their goals. But most importantly, we make stuff that we’re proud to show off and claim as our own. So check it out. We don’t mind.


Graphic Design

Students learn the principles of visual communication and produce logos, websites, and promotional materials using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and In-Design.


Video production

 Do you want to take your video production skills to the next level? Learn how to produce slick videos to communicate your ideas. Students learn how to shoot, write, voice and edit for video.



 Students learn the essential reporting and writing skills for journalism. Through a mix of study and hands-on learning students produce journalistic stories for a variety of media platforms.

It’s a place where you can let your creativity grow.
