If your answer to any of these questions is yes, you should strongly consider examining what the SUNY Orange Arts and Communication Department has to offer. Students in this program will not be able to undertake either the Journalism and Mass Communication major or the Communication and Cultural Studies major in the Bachelor of Arts due to the overlap of content. Sydney Arts students are encouraged to become members of professional associations concerned with their areas of study.
Our degree links practical training in media writing; radio, video, online media production; and media relations; with a scholarly and critical education in media and communications theory and practice. Our graduate program is known as a global center for teaching and research in Communication Studies where students come to study with a diverse faculty who publish extensively with top publishers and academic journals. Our course structures also allow for acquisition of expertise in multiple areas, recognising the need for multi-skilling in today’s arts and communications industries. Information on salaries, training, and employment outlook is different for each career within this pathway.
The EMAC curriculum offers concentrations in Digital Storytelling (Animation, Video, Game Design), Graphic Design, Interaction Design, Marketing Communication and Design, and Sound Design and Popular Culture. Placements can enhance your career prospects and give you the chance to use theory from the classroom in a real-world scenario before you have graduated. The Bachelor of Arts (Media and Communications) degree offers you an exciting combination of academic excellence and professional training in media and communications. If you’re ready to share your story with the world, the School of Arts, Communication and Media is here to help you start. Students develop a critical awareness of how communication influences human lives.
Our aim is to equip you with lifelong learning skills that will position you as a leader in the rapidly-evolving communication and media industries and help you remain competitive throughout your career. Therefore, our flexible degree structure enables you to continue with your studies in the humanities and social sciences, and/or languages and still remain enrolled in Media and Communications.
Students have the option of completing an additional major from the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Table A or from another Faculty within the University as permitted. Here at the School of the Arts and Communication, we pride ourselves on educating students for the highly diverse employment opportunities of the 21st century. Students cannot take a major or extended major in Journalism and Mass Communication (towards the BA component).
