Communication and Media

The interdisciplinary programs in Communication and Media include a master’s in Communication and Media with four distinct areas of concentration—Media and Cinema Studies, Multicultural Communication, Organizational Communication, and Relational Communication; and undergraduate programs in Communication and Media, Organizational Communication, and Media and Cinema Studies. In addition, our Communication and Media BA can be completed partially or fully online.

Students explore the impact of communication and media in a variety of contexts including popular culture, the corporate world, interpersonal relationships, new media and more. Students develop skills across modes such as digital media, film and television, performance, and verbal and nonverbal communication.

“My DePaul degree really differentiates me from others. The perspective I bring is different from that of my colleagues ... My degree program helped me synthesize very complex information into assertive and meaningful messages that help the people who matter.”
