The Department of Communication, Media & Design focuses on providing undergraduate students with the in-demand communication skills that make them valuable in a variety of fields and workplaces, from Fortune 500 companies and digital production studios to video game manufacturers and startups.
Whether earning a BS in digital arts and sciences or a BS in communication, our graduates are well-positioned for the ever-evolving digital economy, entering the workforce with a versatile set of leadership skills in digital art, graphic design, digital video and audio, photography, public relations, social media analysis and digital leadership.
As part of our department, students benefit not only from small class sizes, one-on-one faculty mentorship and access to state-of-the-art technology and equipment, but also from being a part of the technological and innovation-rich environment that Clarkson provides overall. Our students work on interdisciplinary projects with students from other disciplines, such as engineering, science and business, through University-sponsored competitions like the Clarkson Ignite President’s Challenge.
Our faculty do more than just teach. They are also active members of communication, media and design industries; they are filmmakers, writers, artists, innovators, web developers and designers. Their work is exhibited nationally and internationally, earning them many awards.
