Digital Communication

A career in public relations, marketing, social media, or journalism can start with the B.A. in Digital Communication program from Georgian Court University.

We’ve balanced hands-on creation with foundational and experiential learning in the communications field. You’ll learn presentation, web design, writing, research, video production, and editing skills that will enable you to craft and convey high-impact messages that get results in the private and public sectors.

Digital communication is a form of mediated human communication performed with and by various technologies ranging from video and audio to blogs and social media platforms. Our major, which is grounded in an interdisciplinary fusion of communication/media theory and practice, properly prepares students for work in the ever-evolving, media-rich environment.

We have curated a program focused on experiential learning that provides a space in which students can develop their communication skills through public speaking, content creation, news writing, digital editing, and more. Students will research, analyze, and/or create a range of media content, giving them the proper tools to succeed in the private or public sector, while also allowing for the option to work freelance or continue their studies in graduate school.
