Arcadia University (Department of Communications)

Communications offers diverse job opportunities in the expanding field of media and information technology. Arcadia's program balances theory with practice, providing a critical understanding of the communications process along with skills for specific careers.

Students in Communications complete a closely supervised, professional internship in their senior year. They can choose from among 400 media organizations in the greater Philadelphia area, utilizing their acquired knowledge within the challenges of the workplace. Recent internship sites have included: ABC Sports, the Academy of Natural Sciences, WYSP (radio), the Philadelphia Eagles, the Philadelphia Flyers, the Arthritis Foundation, and Philadelphia Magazine.

Students also may choose an internship in London, England, or Sydney, Australia, through Arcadia's Center for Education Abroad. These study abroad internships are strong and unique in preparing students for the challenges of the global workplace.

Murphy Hall houses the Communications studio, which includes three separate editing rooms. Students work with the most current software, Final Cut Studio, and G-5 computers and high quality digital cameras. In addition, they may utilize the audio recording facility, with Pro Tools and other software programs in PC and Mac platforms. Their work in various forms of video, documentary, narrative, experimental or animation is supported by expert guidance from the professionals and open access to the facilities. A campus-based television facility provides opportunities to work on individual and group projects.

Students may have an option to declare a double major. (Please see the University-wide requirements for total number of credits for double majors.) If Communications is one of the majors a student has chosen, no more than two courses may count in both major areas. The Director of the program must approve all double majors.
