With small class sizes, media majors receive personal attention and direction from knowledgeable professors who have a passion for their fields and their students. Courses in media studies expose students to the various aspects of communication, and what they will experience in the television, radio, newspaper, and advertising.
As they pursue a degree, media majors receive hands-on experience through Wayland’s on-campus television and radio stations, plus the student-led newspaper, and live-streaming programs.
A Media Communications degree requires 36 semester hours of study, plus the core courses required by the university. Media majors can expect exciting classes that prepare them for a career in media.
