Applied Media Communications

The Applied Media Communications program prepares students to bridge the gap between traditional media production disciplines and the new digital technologies of media production and communications. It includes instruction in research skills, critical studies in media and portfolio development.

Central to the curriculum are opportunities for students to work on projects for actual clients, under faculty supervision. These real-world experiences complement academic course work. Many of these experiences are provided in regular production courses, but options also exist for professional internships, individual and group studio projects and a professional capstone experience. The program is open to students with a high school diploma or GED.

Graduates have the option of entering the workforce immediately, transitioning to the Applied Media Technology bachelor's degree program at the College Conservatory of Music at UC Uptown, or the Bachelor's of Technical and Applied Studies degree program at UC Blue Ash College.
