The MMC Advantage
MMC students in communication study the history, theory, trends and effects of all forms of communication-from interpersonal to mass media, and from producing video to hands-on multimedia authoring. The Department offers a diverse range of courses taught by highly experienced faculty and industry professionals. We encourage each student to pursue their unique interests, be they critically reflecting on media, producing video, authoring digital media programs, or specializing in promotional communications.
New York, the Communications Capital of the world, is home to U.S. and international broadcasting, cable, advertising, public relations, publishing, music and digital media companies. Through internships, seminars, professional meetings and cultural activities, MMC students meet and work with leaders of these industries. Our students visit TV and radio stations, theatres, museums, corporate communications centers, newspaper and magazine publishing houses, music producers, and "Silicon Alley" multimedia designers and publishers. These diverse activities offer MMC students many opportunities to learn about current industry trends and jobs directly from the experts. Our strong internship program offers students on-site training to expand their studies with work experiences as they prepare for a career in communications.
