Communication and Global Media - Certificate

The Communication and Global Media Certificate (CGMC), is offered by the Department of Communication, and is designed to provide students with an understanding of a communication perspective on the impact of media in a global context. Media and communication sectors are the second largest export markets for the US, after defense and aerospace. The rise of the BRICI (Brazil, Russia, India, China, Indonesia) economies and the desire of businesses to capitalize on the growth of these markets is a prime example of the application of this certificate. The CGMC prepares students for understanding the growth and impact of communication and global media in a variety of similar contexts. Specific certificate requirements are available in the Office of Undergraduate Advising of the Department of Communication. Details are also available on the Department of Communication website.

The CGMC requires designated courses and completion of a global internship or approved experience. Students must earn a grade of “B” or better in each course used to meet the requirements. Students who pursue the CGMC must complete all requirements prior to graduation.
