With new types of media in today’s fast-paced world, staying on top is a must for any multimedia major. At MNU you’ll master these areas of communication by taking courses in public speaking, mass media, interpersonal communication and cross-cultural communication. You’ll be involved in hands-on classess in radio, television, newspaper, magazine writing, graphic design, digital photography, web creation, and video production, and you’ll use programs such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Final Cut Pro.
The goal: to learn how to communicate persuasively and effectively in many different contexts, from a one-on-one
personal conversation, a public address aimed at thousands of people, or converging messages using various forms of media.
You’ll have the opportunity to see what it’s like to work in media by spending time working in the Box—MNU’s student media outlets. Even as a freshman, you can contribute to The Trailblazer Times, official print and online newspaper of MNU, Conestoga, the student yearbook, M Magazine, KMNU Sports Radio and TV2. We award five, $4,000 scholarships annually for General Managers, plus about ten, $500 scholarships for paid multimedia staff positions.
“I love that Multimedia students—from Day 1 as freshman—can get direct, hands on experience with converged media. They don’t have to wait until they’re a junior or senior—they just get thrown in the mix and they get the chance to start producing.”
Mark Hamilton, EdD
Department Chair & Professor.
