Captivate Your Audience Through Science and Technology
The first step in effective communication: using the right tools to reach your audience. The Bachelor of Science in Communication, Media and Design blends the art of storytelling with the science and technology behind emerging modes of communication.
At Clarkson, you'll work in a wide range of fields, learning to build compelling experiences that move readers, listeners and viewers. Whether you're writing text, capturing video, building a website, launching a social media campaign — or all of the above — you'll learn what techniques work best and when to use them.
Our curriculum offers forward-thinking approaches to solving problems across disciplines such as science, technology, the arts, healthcare and beyond. And, you'll do it while getting the kind of hands-on experience and attention that's possible only in a small, close-knit department like ours.
