Welcome to the School of Communications.
This is the most exciting—and challenging—time to be in communications, perhaps since the invention of the printing press. Whether you’re interested in journalism, public relations, media studies, or film, video + interactive media, exciting opportunities await those with the solid educational background and technical skills to thrive in a multimedia world.
Anyone with a Twitter account, Facebook page or just two-thumbs tapping out a message on a tiny keyboard knows that the world of communications is changing at a dizzying speed. And it’s reflected in our own history. The school was built in 1993. We had 400 students. The Apple computers took up most of a desktop, and very few students had laptops or cell phones. Movies were still shot on film. And mail arrived in a paper envelope, not announced with a chime flourish in a G-mail account.
Since then, the school has grown to more than 1,000 students. Computers, cell phones and tablet devices are commonplace. Our fully HD, all-digital McMahon Communications Center allows students to learn in a cutting-edge facility that equals or exceeds the standards of industry. Our award-winning faculty brings their real-world experience into the classroom. And our internship program gives students the opportunity to apply what they’ve learned in a professional setting.
At Quinnipiac University’s School of Communications, we have it all. Come join us!
