Digital Marketing Concentration
For consumers, it’s a digital world. That’s why there is an increased demand for digital marketing experts.

Career paths include social media manager, copywriter, digital analyst, and digital marketing project manager.
Modern Media Concentration
Modern media needs ethical thinkers and expert communicators. They may tell stories as a news reporter, promote products and services for a corporation, or coordinate publicity for a non-profit organization using traditional and new media. Students learn to work across all different platforms of media as writers, reporters, editors, web and publication designers, or publicists.
Sports Communications Concentration
Communication is an integral part of the sports world. The sports communication concentration prepares expert communicators equipped to succeed as sports reporters and writers, sports promoters, and sports information directors.
