As one of the largest departments on campus, our students have access to a massive alumni network, and internship and career opportunities in New York City.
Hands-on learning is what drives this department. As a communication student, you will have the chance to attend live tapings of shows in the city, hone your writing and editing skills as a reporter for The Quadrangle student newspaper, or produce a segment in the on-campus television studio. You also have unparalleled access to internship and career opportunities at New York City's top companies, brands and publications.
Renovated in 2016, The Sumner Redstone Television Production Center is the first college studio in the New York metropolitan area to have cutting-edge, 4K equipment. This is the place where communication majors in our sports media production concentration— a program that works in partnership with ESPN —learn to produce live sports programming, as well as how to shoot, interview and edit packages, and how to announce and offer commentary on games.
Your professors have all worked in the field and are passionate about giving you the tools you need to start a career in advertising, broadcasting, journalism or public relations. You will graduate ready to take on challenging assignments, and knowing the importance of your work.
