Communication and Global Media - Certificate

The Communication and Global Media Certificate (CGMC) is designed to provide students with an understanding of a communication perspective on the impact of media in a global context. Global media examines the flow of information and culture in political, religious and social contexts and across industries. From the development of new media and digital technologies to the influence that media plays in the development of polices, laws and changes to the everyday lives of the people involved, global media studies the messages that influence unseen audiences around the world. Global media careers include international journalism, social justice reform, international trade and commerce, and world-wide travel. The CGMC prepares students for understanding the growth and impact of communication and global media in a variety of similar contexts.  An international internship, study abroad or internship in an international concern is required. Specific certificate requirements are available from an advisor.
