WELCOME to the Communication & Media Arts Department!! It's that time of year again....school starts!! Please remember that all CMMA majors are required to attend our year-opening meeting on Thursday, August 24 at 1:30pm in the Multimedia lab on the 4th floor of Tower hall. Any student who is "CMMA-curious" is welcome as well. We'll talk about facilities, clubs, student jobs and more! And there's snacks!! See you on Thursday.
Students: Yes, you will get to play with lots of video, audio and design equipment and software with a bunch of similarly-minded friends.
Parents: Yes, your son or daughter will BE ABLE TO FIND A LUCRATIVE JOB after he or she graduates. Every company, nonprofit organization and government entity wants employees who can think independently and communicate ideas clearly. Survey after survey, article after article, all place oral and written communication skills at or near the top of the list of attributes that employers are looking for in a recent college graduate.
We know that a CMMA degree from USF arms our graduates with big-picture theory and a flexible, useful set of skills transferable to any industry. For more of our rant on convergence, go here.
CMMA Mission: We develop, refine and teach a curriculum that embraces the function and vision of the liberally-educated media professional of the 21st Century.
CMMA Vision: A converged media education program that combines communication theory, ethics and insight with an evolving set of design, production and performance proficiencies to engender thoughtful, engaged and useful graduates.
