Students in the media studies program

No matter what career path students take after college graduation, effective and thoughtful communication will be critical to their success.

Studying communication at Plymouth State University develops skills that are invaluable in today’s marketplace, including effective public speaking, presentation, written communication, and technical competence.

Students are prepared to enter exciting and rewarding careers in a wide array of fields, including advertising, digital communication, technical writing, public relations, digital media, and filmmaking. Digital video production, journalism, animation, and applied linguistics, an interdisciplinary field that identifies and investigates language-related questions in the real world, can also be explored.

Plymouth State’s Cluster Learning Model prioritizes hands-on, project-based work that is the hallmark of creative team environments, and the new game design major provides the skills for success in a fascinating and rapidly advancing field. Student-created games of increasing sophistication stem from studies in art, business, computer science, communication, and graphic design, along with focused inquiries into game design principles and practice. Students can focus in either creative media or technology to position themselves for work as innovative game designers, interactive web developers, digital artists, and in other related fields, either in-house or successfully self-employed.
