Digital Media Communications
The Digital Media Communications (DMC) major empowers students to share their ideas and their faith in new and creative ways by teaching them the technical, creative and communication skills necessary to connect in this interactive age. DMC majors learn to collaborate, experiment and innovate through a series of hands-on classes and practical projects for both internal and external clients. We equip students to think creatively and critically in this ever-evolving field, providing them with skills and experiences needed to design, develop and deploy projects across a variety of media platforms.
Digital Media Communications is a merger of our Digital Media Studies and Media Communications majors, so if you were interested in either DMS or Media Comm. then you will want to check out this major. DMC majors take courses in video production, digital photography, television production, interactive media, and social media. Additionally, students will have numerous opportunities to work on hands-on, practical projects through the Bulldog Communications Group, Cardinal & Cream, Jackson 24/7, Union University Basketball, and the Circles of Hope telethon. DMC students also have the the opportunity to take student trips and serve in leadership roles of the Digital Media Society, National Broadcasting Society and Union Film Society.
Union’s digital media program is one of the founding members of the International Digital Media and Arts Association (iDMAa), and the digital media studies coordinator, Dr. Chris Blair, has served as both president and chairman of the Board of Directors of the association. Throughout the past ten years, numerous digital media students have had the opportunity to participate in iDMAa conferences across the country.
