Careers aren’t handed to you. And good leaders know that communication and media skills can be the difference between success and failure in a digital economy. In the Department of Communication, Media and Design, we understand what you need to rise to the next level, whether your focus is on storytelling, graphic arts, web design, digital video or social media.
Communication, Media & Design majors are in demand. Industries within nearly every sector need an experienced workforce capable of creating, editing, translating and disseminating information on a variety of expanding platforms. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, communication and media jobs are expected to steadily grow over the next decade.
Clarkson’s Communication undergraduate bachelor's degree program is rooted in hands-on real-world projects in the classroom. These projects have included leading campus-wide social media campaigns that raised nearly $275,000 over the last two years, designing virtual reality components for the New York Department of Environmental Conservation, and assisting with the design and implementation of Clarkson’s smart housing complex where students measure their resource usage through a consumption dashboard.
