About

Whether your passion is film, music, television, news, photography, or any aspect of the media landscape, you’ll develop your skills under the tutelage of an experienced group of faculty. Our small classes of the Media and Communication Studies program of Johnson & Wales University let faculty really get to know you. Plus, you’ll have lots of time with our inventory of industry-standard equipment.

Overview

In addition to hands-on experiences, you’ll dissect the power that media has to shape the way we live. You’ll analyze theories of specific media and focus your studies in advertising, production, writing, or management. The interdisciplinary approach to education of the Media and Communication Studies program of Johnson & Wales University allows you to view the world through a variety of perspectives. And you’ll have an opportunity to get involved in our media clubs, such as the campus newspaper (the Campus Herald), the student radio station (JWU Live), the music & entertainment industry club (MEISA), and the JWU Film Production Club.
