FOUR IMPORTANT REASONS Students Choose a Communications Degree at Misericordia University
# 1 - EXPERIENCED COMMUNICATIONS INSTRUCTORS WITH PROFESSIONAL MEDIA EXPERIENCE. Our faculty brings over 60 years of real-world experience in journalism, electronic media, and media management to their teaching. This instructor experience provides in-depth learning for students and better preparation for their first jobs.
# 2 - THE BEST DIGITAL MEDIA FACILITIES IN THE REGION. Our facilities are typical of what you would find in the best-equipped professional television and radio stations. (Take the "Facilities" link for more details.)
# 3 – SMALL CLASSES. Instructors work closely with students and equipment is available without waiting in line. Campus media opportunities are readily available: students can crew a television production, get published in The Highlander, or have their own radio show on world-wide Cougar Radio.
# 4 – A WELL-ROUNDED COMMUNICATIONS CURRICULUM. Studies show that the current generation of college students will change careers 7 to 9 times in their working lives. Our Communications degree – which builds on Misericordia's liberal arts curriculum – can prepare students for work in media, business, corporate affairs, government, and, for some, to continue on to graduate school.
A Specialization in Public Relations & Advertising has been added to the COM major. Use the Curriculum link at the top of this page for more details.
