Communication and Media Arts

The Department of Communications and Media Arts provides students with disciplined understanding of current media trends, technologies and skills as well as the impact of media on society and the individual person. The courses blend theory and hands-on training to prepare and form students into knowledgeable, responsible and effective communicators.

Communications and Media Arts Department Mission Statement:
"The question confronting the Church today is not any longer whether the man in the street can grasp a religious message, but how to employ the communications media so as to let him have the full impact of the Gospel message." -Saint John Paul II
The Department of Communication and Media Arts seeks to empower our students to use all forms of media for the promotion of what is true, good and beautiful. The vision for the department is to affect change in our culture by forming students that can effectively communicate truth.
