Do you have a passion for film, radio, television, and other media? Do you dream of playing a part in the production process? If so, you should consider a degree in media communication.
As a media communication major at PLNU, you will be immersed in a program designed to prepare you for a wide range of careers in television, film, radio, and/or new media production, as well as media management. You’ll work alongside creative classmates and expert faculty to gain the skills needed to be a writer, performer, producer, director, cinematographer, videographers, sound engineer, lighting designer, or editor. We also prepare you to work in the specific areas you're interested in, including narrative and documentary film, news, sports broadcasting and production, music, advertising, corporate media and even Christian-religious media. You pick what you want to do and where, and we will help you get there.
