Course Information

Communication is a liberal arts discipline, rooted in persuasive speaking and writing. It is also a pre-professional discipline that prepares you for a career in mass media.

Why Choose Communication?

The power of language and image is evident in nearly every part of our daily lives. This presentation of media shapes private, public and corporate opinions. By studying communication, you’ll be an influencer of these opinions. You’ll also be flexible enough to adapt to change as digital media technology evolves.

What Will You Learn?

As a communication major, you will choose to concentrate in one of six areas:

  • Advertising
  • Integrated Marketing Communications
  • Journalism
  • Media Production
  • Public Relations
  • Sports Media Production

You are also required to have a minor outside of communication. Because in today’s world, you need to know more than just how to create and produce media. All media content, from news stories, to advertisements to PR campaigns, is about something. Popular minor options include government, economics, sociology or urban studies.

You will get your hands on real equipment even before you graduate. Class sizes are small, so you will have the chance to fill each role in a multi-part project, from writing, editing or producing, to interviewing, anchoring or camerawork.

Studying communication at Manhattan College will also teach you how to be an ethical media professional in an industry where the lines are sometimes blurred.
