Presenting news and current events through the media has evolved in recent years, and now is your chance to start your own career in communication and media with the Communication and Media Studies program of Stetson University.


The faculty of the Communication and Media Studies program of Stetson University aids students in becoming effective creators and critics of communication in relationships, the workplace, the media, the political and legal spheres and organizations (both non-profit and for-profit).

Communicating is something we all do on a daily basis. Both an understanding of human communication and the ability to communicate well are the keys to a successful career. You will be exposed to diverse methods of education, including discussion-rich classes, internships, field experience and ultimately a senior research project. The classes required within our program are used to study communication from rhetorical and qualitative perspectives. You will learn how to be ethical and effective as a communicator who can understand and navigate different cultural, political and social contexts.

Program Benefits

  • Major requirements within our program are designed to give students a choice in regards to communication emphasis and an opportunity to study other disciplines.
  • Interdisciplinary courses and a diverse curriculum cover main interpretative and critical methods for studying communication phenomena.
  • Two semesters are given to developing your senior project.
  • Curriculum and class projects prepare students for a wide range of professions as well as post-graduate studies.

Career Outlook

Graduates with a degree in communications and media studies will find opportunities across multiple occupations and sectors. A background in social media is now expected, but experience in content development, technical writing or business to business communications can lead to slightly higher salaries.
