Communication skills are the foundation of twenty-first century careers. By developing expertise in written, spoken, visual and digital formats, you can set the pace for today’s global communication industries. The entertainment industries major equips you with the critical thinking skills and professional know-how to successfully navigate the dynamic creative practices, industrial structures, and legal mechanisms in such global industries as film, television, music, games and sports.
You learn how to research, implement, and critically assess a range of strategic activities, from identifying talent, developing pitches, and negotiating contracts to engaging culturally diverse audiences and evaluating the impact of new technologies. Combine your major with additional study areas, work integrated learning, internships with industry partners, international exchange and study tour opportunities.
You collaborate with students from other disciplines to provide a richer learning experience that reflects real-world working environments.
