The career possibilities are endless with a Communication Arts degree and between the internship and portfolio opportunities provided at BenU Mesa, students are able to clearly demonstrate their worth to future employers.
"I have learned so much more than just how to edit video. The Communication majors are a close, tight-knit community that not only work with each other on class projects, but also have something in common outside of the classroom as well: pride for our work. Our faculty have gone above and beyond to help us achieve our goals and keep our passion for creativity alive. Ultimately, it was my experience working as an intern in the Marketing and Communications department on campus that made it clear to me that I want to attend grad school to work in public relations and marketing. I am extremely happy that I chose Benedictine University Mesa!”
Students have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience starting as early as their freshman year. Whether it be creating a public service announcement for TV production, publishing and editing a poster or brochure in layout and design or producing a press release in public relations writing, students can immediately begin building a robust portfolio.
All senior students are required to complete a portfolio that includes all projects, publications, designs and video materials created throughout your four years at Benedictine. The portfolio, combined with the limitless internship opportunities available in Downtown Mesa, puts our students one step ahead of the competition.
Students who are interested in media communications or have a passion for sports can choose our unique Sports Communication concentration within the Communication Arts program. Sports journalism, sports broadcasting and sports culture are a few of the classes that satisfy the requirements for this concentration.
