Major in Media Management

General

Program Description

Media Management majors study how to lead, supervise, and motivate employees in the media industry. Program professors are skilled teachers whose backgrounds include academic and professional achievement at the highest levels. The curriculum covers marketing, sales, distribution, programming, and management for the media industry. Students learn about the inner workings of media companies such as radio, television, and digital media. Outside the classroom, students are encouraged to become involved in student media organizations where there are hands-on opportunities in management, marketing, sales, and production. Students are also encouraged to complete internships at the department’s many internship partners. Interns not only learn “on the job” but also begin to establish themselves in the industry.

This program is approved for the Academic Common Market.
