As a student in the Media major, you will study communication technologies (such as digital and social media, film, journalism, television, radio, and the press) and learn how they impact communication, culture and the Christian faith. Your degree will do more than prepare you for a job— it will teach you to use your skills, talents, and media specialization to influence the world.

Theoretical Understanding of Communication and Media Theory

What Will I Learn?

  • Media theory and practice— the content of the discipline
  • How you can make connections between your learning, your profession, and your life
  • The critical thinking and communication skills necessary to succeed as a media professional
  • The ethical standards and values necessary to communication responsibly
  • How to integrate your spiritual life and faith experience so you can be engaged with the world and culture

Coursework includes courses in media production and writing, media management, and media theory, as well as core courses in communication. Much of your learning will happen in professional internships which provide real-world work experience. You will choose a focused concentration outside of the media major such as business, marketing/advertising, visual arts/graphic design.

Mike Kephart 

"My whole experience at Roberts was awesome! I met a lot of amazing people and professors like Dr. Song that helped me through college. My time at Roberts as a media major was extra special because I was the first student ever to graduate from the program! Professors like Dr. Song and many others really show you how interesting the program is and they make you love it! I’m currently  working in management as well as doing marketing and brand expansion! It’s taught me a lot but I’ve also been able to use what I learned at Roberts to help myself be successful as well!"
