The communication major prepares students for careers in the mass communication industries or graduate school and supports Le Moyne College's mission of educating the whole person by encouraging an appreciation for the social, cultural, and ethical issues related to mass communication.

Overview

All communication majors take a nucleus of courses designed to provide a broad understanding of contemporary mass media, and to give them fundamental skills in creating and interpreting written, visual, audio, and multimedia texts. They also take a variety of electives within the department and use these to broaden or sharpen their focus of study within the field of communication.

Each communication and film studies student also chooses a minor in order to develop another mastery of specific and substantive subject matter. The student will use free electives to fulfill that minor.
